Book Review #1362 My Name is Elizabeth by Annika Dunklee
Book Review #1362
My Name is Elizabeth by Annika Dunklee, illustrated by Matthew Forsythe
Rating: three stars (out of four)
This spunky little girl's name is Elizabeth and that's what she wants to be called. Not Beth, Betsy, or Eliza. She wants her full name because she loves it so much. The illustrations were especially fun. I loved the orange and blue striations of color that animated the people and places throughout the pages. I was also quite fond of the little duck that followed Elizabeth around. I usually try to read the author bios in the back and I'm always amused by the way the author/illustrator tie in the theme of the book with their bios. Annika prefers her full name, while Matthew doesn't mind be called Matt. Hilarious. I'd especially recommend for people who are not fan of their names being shortened. A great read.
