Book Review #1339
Big Cat Pepper by Elizabeth Partridge, illustrated by Lauren Castillo
Rating: two stars (out of four)
I can see the point of this book, but I just didn't think it did a good job of conveying the loss of a pet. The rhymes were kind of choppy and cliche. I was annoyed with some of the repition and felt like it was used as an attempt to make the text flow better, but it just got on my nerves. The pictures were pretty good - I enjoyed looking at each page, but it was hard to stomach when it was mixed with the story's message. It was pretty much touch and go with this book, but mostly go.
