I initially loved that the orientation of the book was a bit larger than life. I initially had picked this one up with high hopes! Right away, I loved the pencil drawings, especially the full bleeds of the rain storm. However, the story fell very flat for me. I wish there had been more adventures. There were so many opportunities that I felt the author/illustrator did not take. I also had some issues with the placement of the text on the full bleed pages.
