Read full description of the books:
I couldn't ignore this book given the fabulous cover art; all those big cats staring at me, imploring me to take them home ;-) But, alas, I didn't end up liking the book all that much. Ultimately, I wavered between three and four stars, but finally leaned toward the fabulous illustrations which really are the main aspect of the story. The words, though sparse, are used well. And I do love books that celebrate imagination. But, overall, the end result here was just a bit too odd for me, I'm afraid. The ocean creatures coming out of the sea and swirling around the sky, with the four lionesses, and the little boy... I see lots of other people love this title so maybe it's just one that I don't "get" (unlike other imaginative illustrated texts I've seen) but I did love the illustrations of the cats.
