Book Review #362
Peppe The Lamplighter by Elisa Bartone, illustrated by Ted Lewin
Rating: two stars (out of four)

I'm not really sure how I feel about this book.  I thought that there were some obvious plot "flaws" that were a little confusing.  If Peppe's family needed money and Peppe got a job to help support, how on earth could his father be disappointed?  The ending was a tad bit unrealistic, but hey - it's a children's book.  I did enjoy looking a the illustrations, I thought they were very cool and I loved the close-ups of the faces.
