Howl of the Lambergoon
The Howl of the Lambergoon is one of the most creative children’s book I’ve seen so far. It follows Gad, Princess Aud, and Hoon ga tree, on a long journey to make peace with the Lambergoon. Gad and Hoon meet the Lambergoon in an intense face-off, declaring their fate with each other. They meet Aud, who claims she was sent from the king. They traveled across the great sea to meet the king, who flies out in an outrage, slamming fists, wanting the Lambergoon’s absence. They made the treacherous adventure to meet the grudging Lambergoon.
This has been one of the most intense books I have read. This is a picture book but not for younger readers. It is great book to read if you haven’t been reading recently. I recommend this book because it has such a unique fantasy world, and the author does a good job of illustrating the world’s rules, and it is a great experience immersing yourself in such a well-crafted universe. The reason this book stood out to me is not only because the illustrations are just as good as the story, but because I feel fourth- to seventh-graders or even adults are the main target audience. The story is so immersive that younger audiences, maybe kindergarteners to second-graders, might not understand the story as well as older readers and therefore might not enjoy it as much.
