Book Review #916
The Magician's Elephant by Kate DiCamillo, illustrated by Yoko Tanaka
Rating: three stars (out of four)
Reading this story makes you feel like you're living in a dream. The colors are subdued and all the edges are blurred...but it is still a lovely dream and you have no wish to wake up. Kate DiCamillo is an excellent writer who crafts simple sentences into sweet stories and picturesque characters. I will read every novel she publishes because I am in love with her writing. This story is about loss, redemption, love, and friendship - all woven together in a lovely little book. I would recommend.
