Trusted Reviews & Ratings

Mr. Staccato
Spent many carefree hours hunting clues with the Hardy boys and defending Redwall Abbey.
4.5 / 7.0

Bert is a little nervous about making the jump of his branch. He has several false starts before he finds the courage to make the leap. It’s a simple story with a straightforward message of being brave with some positive encouragement from friends.

B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
4.25 / 7.0

The book has an fun and unexpected twist, but fell a little flat for me. Not a huge storyline, but I liked that part of the story was solely illustrations showing what was happening.
