My least favorite Brett book,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Hedgie Blasts Off! (Hardcover)
I have just about every book Jan Brett has written including the ones she just illustrated. This one is a break from her usual style. I'm sure it would be good for children who love the space themed stories. The illustrations are good. But, I miss the sub-story so often included in Brett's page margins. These are just regularly illustrated pages.
If you are a collector of her books, like I am, you will need this for your collection. But, if you are just buying books for the best illustrations and story lines, stick to her other books like THE MITTEN, THE UMBRELLA, TROUBLE WITH TROLLS, etc. I will be looking forward to her next book and hoping it's a return to her regular, wonderful style.
