My Review: I’m a huge fan of reading children’s books. They take me back to when I was a kid and help me recapture some of that innocence that gets lost as we grow older.
The writing is tight and fast paced, as would be expected of the genre. The characters are simple, yet complex as they learn their way through the world and balance what they want with what’s expected of them.
This was as fun and entertaining as they get. It flies by and I know I would’ve really enjoyed it as a child. What’s better than escaping into a land of animals and their friends?
