That out of the way, the pictures were just a bit to cartoon like and not drawn out into something I would recommend for children out of 1st grade. (I work in a school library for elementary) The book itself was written with chapters, implying that it is for advanced chapter readers (3rd grade and above, some advanced 2nd graders) that being said, most chapter readers have more realistic looking characters as the base audience is 8 year olds and above. Most of the 8 year olds I know and help daily find books are not interested in cartoon like drawing that 'baby' the animal.
The story, written as is, seems a bit forced in some areas, like it was approaching it's editing deadline and needed to be wrapped up quickly. The flow of the paragraphs was a bit choppy at times, and the detail was somewhat lacking.
I feel like this book and illustrations were geared for a audience much younger. Preferably an audience that would enjoy the cartoon image of animals that look like coloring book creatures they are use to, then allowing for a simpler paragraph style, allowing the lack of defined details as it were.
The plot was ok, my main issue is why coconut? Where did that come from? Are they in a part of the world that has those indigenous? If so, then was that described properly? I feel as a writer, we can't slap things in a book for children and expect them not to question it because it's "not real", I know a few children would be confused as there was no coconut tree drawn. Just oak trees, and other trees that looked more main land not tropical at all.
I give this book 3 out of 5 because I believe the author had great intentions, but the illustrations were off, and the label for chapter/target age group was defined wrong as well.
I read this book to our 6 year old granddaughter and she just loved it. She made a point to let us know that the 3 animals in the story were completely different from each other but were friends anyway. She also made a point to let me know that she loved the colors that were used by the illustrator to help tell the story. She did ask a question that I did not have an answer for: why is there coconuts next to a river when they usually grow on an island. Other than that she loved it. Can't wait to see what the other books in this series teach young people.
My issues: The pictures were shown well after the incident. They didn't match up with the text. Where did the coconuts come from? Not a tropical area, just oak trees.
