3.5 stars. I received this book from the author in exchange of an honest review.
This was a cute little book about standing up for yourself. In the forest (and world) where these animals live, there are also wizards, wizards who like to bully the animals (tsk, bad bad wizard!). The book starts off pretty cute and fluffy, but soon the fog of fear descents and we can see the animals become afraid, you see them share their fears with neighbours and friends. Even though the book is short (only 24 pages) and is a picture book, you could just feel the fear, you could see that this fog, and this wizard wasn't someone you would mess with.
I loved how the animals decided to band together and do something awesome, I won't say what, though the title and cover do kind of spoil the surprise, but at least you didn't hear it from me. ;) I really liked the solution, and I hope that they will bring lots of happiness around the world, hopefully those bad bully wizards will learn not to mess around, though, knowing how bullies are, I guess they will never learn.
The illustrations are pretty decent, they looked really good at times, a bit less at other times, but I still see that the illustrator/author but a lot of love and time in them.
The only thing that I didn't find matching was the font, it felt a bit out of place and a bit too big.
Other than that, I would say that people should try this out, it is a fun book, and I think kids will like it.
