The illustrations are beautiful in this book, and I love the way it engages the imagination. Definitely a winner.


A reminiscent mash-up of Ever The Wild Things Are and Harold And The Purple Crayon. This book is such a delightful read. Without words, my son and I can someone the story each tone we return to it, which is quite frequently. The illustrations are delightful and have small surprises for repeat readers. Definitely worth checking out.
