Reading this to myself was interesting, but this book really shines when you read it to a child. There are plenty of sound effects and colorful descriptions to keep a child’s attention. The characters are very well-suited to doing voices when you’re reading, which I always consider an important factor when reading to my son. I loved the message about friendship regardless of differences and having common, yet slightly different, interests. This is something my son is starting to learn and having some trouble with, so this story was very well-timed.
I would highly recommend this story for the fun factor and the lesson.
Patricia Furstenberg came to writing though reading, her passion for books being something she inherited from her parents. She usually writes at her kitchen table, early morning while the kettle hums or in her car, while she waits for her children to come out from school. “When I write, I write,” she usually says. When she’s not writing she likes to read, listen to music, dance and bake.
