This was a fun read. The book was a little unexpected in its message and we really enjoyed it. The illustrations are a perfect blend with the story elements. I would recommend the book for read aloud time with young readers. I’m sure it would engender some excellent conversation about how they could show the law of levity and lift the spirits of others around them.

How many times have we either used or heard the expression "Nobody Knows"? Foster loves to learn new things so he asks a lot of questions. Many times the answer is Nobody knows. Then one night Nobody comes to visit and begins to teach Foster a very important law, The Law of Levity. Foster soon has a chance to put this new knowledge to use. If fact the very next day when he has a chance to make his mother feel better.
Combining simple text with cute colorful and interacting illustrations will hold the child's attention throughout the story as our adorable Foster comes alive for the young readers. My two seven year old great nieces and I enjoyed being able to share the story together.
Thank you Netgalley and Charwood Publications for the opportunity to read and review this book
You are introduced to a clever little boy, Foster, who is obsessed with knowing the WHYS of, well, everything! “Why can’t we do this, that, and the other?” And he is always told that “Nobody” can do this, that or the other. This bewilders Foster and his naturally inquisitive nature. His answers are finally given to him when he receives a visit from Nobody! What starts out as a fanciful adventure ends up being a very profound, thought-provoking journey that will stick with you long after you close the book.
You will be pulling this little classic off of your bookshelf with great regularity. There’s no doubt in my mind about that!
This is a truly delightful kids story that is fun for adults too. Wonderful illustrations full of colour bring Foster's tale to life, and the text flows well and as an easy read, with some lovely little hooks and twists that will make you smile. Recommended
