Delightful Read-Aloud Stories

I received a pre-publication copy of this for review. I was absolutely delighted with it! I was literally grinning as I read the first two stories: I'm in Charge! and Seven Silly Brothers. The author really shines in telling stories for young boys. The last story, The King's Three Questions, is a bit preachy, but it was funny the way the Princess and the Queen would roll their eyes. According to his bio, the author is a performance storyteller, and I think that really helped him in writing this because I could hear the story in my head as I read it. He has a great sense of rhythm and repetition which is so important in read-aloud stories.

The book is illustrated with silhouette drawings that capture the action and are in a style that reminds me of some of my favorite storybooks from my own childhood. If my kids were still in the bedtime story age I am pretty sure they would be asking me to read this to them over and over again. Which would be ok with me since they are such fun stories.

All in all this is a wonderful storybook that will soon be a favorite in any bedtime story library.

I believe that right now, you can get the Kindle version for free when you buy the print edition. Both are available on Amazon
