They reminded me a bit of Harold and the Purple Crayon. But just a bit.
They’re kind of random.
And they’re kind of weird.
At some point you want to yell at Simon, “you know that thing you just drew is going to end up in the land of chalk drawings.”
But he just doesn’t get it.
And the dinosaur book he was reading? It must have been Dinosaurs Unleashed Because it said the dinosaurs went extinct “hundreds of years ago.” Hundreds?
As far as recommendations? I wouldn’t not recommend this collection of stories. But I wouldn’t go overboard in recommending them, either.
Thanks to NetGalley and Dover Publications for a copy in return for an honest review.
