My Thoughts & Review
This is such a cute book I fell in love with it.
The story has so many lovely hidden messages for young readers to discover. It subtly teaches about friendship and diversity to name just a couple.
I really liked the friendships that grew in this book between the characters.
This book is perfect for readers of any age, but think it would be perfect for 8 to 12 year olds. I will be looking into purchasing a few copies for a few nieces and nephews during Christmas. They would make perfect stocking fillers.
I also loved the illustrations throughout the book. They are absolutely stunning. And the front cover . I fell in love with it as soon as I saw the attachment in my inbox.
Overall, a fab book for children and adults everywhere.
I would like to thank Maxine Sylvester for sending me a review copy of this wonderful book in return for an honest and unbiased review.
