animals!!! they’re just like us!!! only … much cuter.
this is another one of those silly little humor books i use as palate-cleansers between big ole narrative books that i have to let settle in my brain before i review. and as a palate-cleanser, it served its purpose ably.
its definitely stronger in its pictures than its words. the things animals apparently think aren’t really laffter-worthy:
although sometimes they do echo my own thoughts. evidently my spirit animal is either the otter or the flying squirrel.
but the book is worth looking at because of its illustrations. i love the way he draws animals, even if i’m not in awe of the accompanying text:
whether the animal is already a cutie:
or something less cuddly:
and the way he draws sloths is alone worth the price of admission:
especially this one that shows how a sloth does stand-up:
so if you need a little break from story story story, books like these are perfect little vacations from thinking too hard, and no one should feel lazy or frivolous for taking a silly little book vacation. i never feel that way.
now back to my “big” book.
