3.0

I have a three-year-old who loves the aquarium and adores every animal there, so I expected that this book would be a hit with her. She loved the illustrations and enjoyed pointing out the octopuses, fish, and other animals on each page. However, the actual story was just too wordy for her, and wasn’t engaging enough to keep her attention all the way through. I found myself summarizing each page rather than reading it, and she was still lost by the end. Maybe we could try it again in a year or two and see how it goes. I can see how someone would enjoy this book, but it just wasn’t a good fit for us right now.

Who Wrote Inky's Great Escape

author
Casey Lyall

CASEY LYALL (5’4”, brown hair, blue eyes, no known aliases) is a middle-grade writer from Southwestern Ontario. She works at her local library where she runs a number of teen groups and waits for management to discover they’re actually paying her to have fun. When she’s not writing, Casey loves to bake, watch an “unhealthy” amount of movies and television, and of course, read. She’d consider adding detective work to the list if she could find a proper coat. You can find her on Twitter as @CKLyall.
