By Vole Brothers
This is a wonderfully hilarious picture book that will keep kids wanting to turn the page to find out what happens. What a GREAT feeling!
This book is about The Vole Brothers. They set out on a walk. But they discover many different adventures along the way. And what had to be predictable is not at all. In fact, the skies are not as clear as they expected either.
This is also a tale about one-upmanship. This is so much what kids experience in school and it will give them a few lessons on how it looks from the outside.
I recommend this book for kids of all ages. It is simple to read so it can be read with a younger child. But the themes in the book make it relevant for the older child as well.
