My Thoughts

The first time around, I listened to this. You can read the full review of the audiobook here. I didn’t realize until after I’d reviewed it that the ebook was attached and we could have looked at the pictures, but c’est la vie! The story remained fast-paced story with lots of action, a cute, introductory mystery, and a great conclusion. It’s a great story for the little ones with enough going on for the adults to enjoy it the first time, and probably the 31st time, which is important with kids of a certain age.

The storyline, to me, was like a retelling of the Grinch with a modern-day twist. But I don’t want to give too much away. It’s a great story, and your kiddos – and probably you – will love it. You should add it to your collection if for no other reason than 5% of proceeds go to helping kids with dyslexia and another 5% go to helping kids with autism. As someone with a family full of neurodivergent individuals, including myself, my husband, and my daughter, this is very close to my heart.

It’s also exciting to me that the book is designed with neurodivergent kids in mind. The font is dyslexia friendly, and I’ve heard from other sources that these types of fonts also help people with ADHD read more easily.

I am so grateful to the author and Love Books Tours for including me on this month-long readalong. I always enjoy the experience of delving deeper into the subject matter and seeing what it has to offer.

About the Author

The recommended age group is 4-10, and I think that’s appropriate. For the younger kids, it’s an exciting story and for the older ones they’ll actually benefit from the clear messaging.
