Review #1390 This Way, Ruby! by Jonathan Emmett
Book Review #13
This Way, Ruby! by Jonathan Emmett, illustrated by Rebecca Harry
Rating: three stars (out of four)
The colorful illustrations and sweet story really made this book a worthwhile read. I loved the alliteration of names and sounds throughout as well. And even though it might have been a traumatic situation, the author and illustrator handled it in a very appropriate manner and still managed to create an interesting story and atmosphere. The pictures were lovely, I liked the bright colors and blocky style. The ducklings were very cute and I really liked how Ruby took charge when she was needed by her siblings. A good story that I would recommend to others.
