Acquired: Received a review copy from Capstone Press.

Reason for Reading: I enjoy this publisher.

Basic easy reader with detailed information for the minimal text that is provided. Wonderful quality cartoonish illustrations are delightful and add humour to the factual text. A simple graphic interface with four frames per two page spread, narrative text between frames, and one to two comic bubbles that lead to the next page. The reading level is at the higher end of the given spread (K-3) and this would also be perfect for little ones who are reading ahead of age level.
