Follow Your Bliss
on May 9, 2014
Tom Lichtenheld has done it again! This is more high energy than Good Night, Construction Site, but I've never seen my daughter laugh so hard reading a book before. I got hooked on Lichtenheld after reading Shark vs. Train.
Here's the set up--a documentary about a moose is being made, but the moose isn't playing his role as a proper moose. Morris plays the gag up as every page just gets crazier, which causes the director to really lose his cool. I won't give away the ending, but it's brilliant. There's a reveal that you realize was there in places throughout the book and it puts everything into perspective in a big but subtle way. Don't be fooled but the craziness! This is as sophisticated as any illustrated book I've read in terms of delivering a message for kids about following your bliss.
