this book has no words the way The Book with No Pictures has no pictures.
i do not know which book would win in a fight, but i do know that this book is adorable. because of the pictures. without the pictures, it would just be a blank book, and i would like it less.
this one is about a walrus who escapes from the zoo and has adventures while hiding from the zookeeper who is desperately trying to make him come back. i mean, i assume it is about that. without words, it is open to interpretation. maybe the walrus only works at the zoo and this book is a story about what he does on his day off. we will never know for sure. but what we are certain of is that sometimes this walrus is good at blending in and other times not so much.
and “where’s walrus” is a game you can even play in nature!
okay, so some of those are seals, but if you squint, it’s still awesome.
i will return to reviewing more serious and adult books soon, after this heat and holiday are behind me…
