Children’s Book Review: Plip Plap Plop by IBK

cover83727-mediumIt was kind of a cute story, but the book needed an editor before it was released. It could have used some help with sentence flow and with punctuation.

I realize it is written for younger readers, and shorter sentences could sound choppy, but the sentences could be re-written to flow better and still be for a young audience.

Also, in the first picture of the instruction manual, the words in the book don’t match the words on the page (there’s an extra ‘a’ in the book).

And why does the art take several different forms? It’s like there are multiple artists; it’s a bit jarring and it takes away from the book as a cohesive whole.

It even looks like there’s an autocorrect typo on page 68. “Plip” was changed to “Philip” but never fixed.

Thanks to NetGalley and Couronne Publishing for a copy in return for an honest review.
