A Very Cranky Book

We rated this book:


Cranky Book, you live up to your name! The story is interactive through answering questions and having a conversation with the Cranky Book. The Cranky Book does not want to be read; it does not want to do anything with anyone, it wants to be left alone. The Cranky Book can seem rude at times when it is so persistent toward the reader to leave him alone; but, similar to kids and adults, he can and does change his mind, because deep down, he doesn’t want to be left out. Will the Cranky Book stay this way forever, or change his attitude?

Reading through A Very Cranky Book, it reminded me of similar stories with the character asking questions. I thought there wasn’t too much that happened in the story, except that the book was cranky the whole time until the end. The illustrations looked good, with the main characters brighter and darker versus the background being lighter and paler. I think that younger kids will enjoy reading this book the most, or maybe kids who don’t like reading much, which will be good by getting them to read another story.
