Being rather fond of the works of Poe and ravens, I found this to be a charming and fun play on The Fall of the House of Usher. It ended in such a way that even though I've had to read it numerous times since it arrived, I still grin at the end. It has lead to much discussion about gender-based exclusion and how we treat our siblings. We will definitely be purchasing the previous two installments in the Edgar series.
If you have a love of literature and want to introduce your preschooler (very loosely) to Poe this is a clever way to do so that it sure to delight. A short bedtime story that also teaches a simple lesson about inclusion, sibling relationships, and rising from a fall.
Notes: Review copy received via publisher.
There are definite nods to THE FALL OF THE HOUSE OF USHER in this story book for children, but the outcome is much better than the original tale for sure.
I enjoyed the illustrations as well in this BabyLit book. As always with the BabyLit books they are age appropriate while introducing the reader to classic literature.
