The colors in this book are amazing! These pictures add to the story without redirecting the reader. Not only that, the story is intriguing and the pictures add to the story. I do think that the pictures tell the story.
This book is alright, but nothing too special. It would be okay to have in a classroom library, but I doubt I would include it in the curriculum. Like many books, it could be used as an imaginary writing prompt, but there are many other, more enticing, books.
