The illustrations are beautifully done with a playful bent. This little dog has the best adventures!! Driving clouds, becoming friends with an imprisoned snowman (who he helps escape), and learning that friendship is the most important thing of all.
A++ from this family!
There's no words just charming pictures, so the reader has to add the words, which means you can make it as detailed or as simple as you like. It also allows my daughter to 'read' the story when I'm not there.
The smaller Polos are ideal for bedtime as they are a little shorter - but this one has a much better adventure. We've got them all and wish there were more.
So begins this utterly impossible - yet entirely convincing - wordless adventure book. Each page bends the mind a bit further as Polo travels through visual tricks and treats from one adventure to another, ranging from whales to icebergs to the moon, only to end up back on his tree-island with all the friends he's met along the way.
The book is illustrated with bold, brightly colored cartoon-like illustrations that vividly bring each unlikely scene to believable life. Children will be drawn to the colors and the whimsy of the book. Also, because it is entirely wordless, this is the first book that my four and a half year old can "read" by herself. She likes to read it by flashlight curled up under her covers before falling asleep at night.
This book is charming and delightful for both children and their parents. We will be adding more Polo books to our collection soon!

My boys (5 and 3) both love this wordless book. It's almost like a graphic novel with no words. It's quite long, which they love. Read morePublished on June 16, 2011 by laribrook
