Book Review #264
Where The Buffaloes Begin by Olaf Baker, illustrated by Stephen Gammell
Rating: two stars (out of four)

The illustrations for this book immediately caught my attention, I couldn't help but be enamored by the black and white drawings.  As I read through the story though, I found my attention wavering and couldn't really appreciate the book.  I'm still not sure how I feel about the nature of this story or if it is really all that appropriate for children, elements of it were violent in a simplistic manner so that the youngest of minds wouldn't catch exactly what was going on.  This is not a book I'm planning on reading again anytime soon.
