I received a signed copy of this book for having been involved in a giveaway on GoodReads, and the following review is my honest opinion for it.
This is the second book I’ve read written by this author. In this book, “Pibbin the Small,” which is also the first book in the “Tales of Friendship Bog” series, readers are first introduced to the characters which live there. And once again the author has succeeded in subliminally teaching its young readers about another life lesson, and this time it’s the importance of friendship.
In this story, Pibbin, despite being the smallest of all the small tree frogs living in Friendship Bog, is willing to do whatever it takes to obtain the much needed Sweetberry leaves his turtle friend Sheera needs to get better. And all the horrific tales told by the other frogs of what he can expect outside the area they call home does nothing in trying to intimidate Pibbin from setting forth on this almost perilous journey. Being determined to succeed in his task and to overcome the obstacles he encounters is also cleverly communicated to its readers through Ms. Repp’s writing technique and the wonderfully placed illustrations by Michael.
I find it a pleasure to be able to get away from the adult books I read/review to read a good children’s book like this; which is why I’ve given this book 5 STARS.
