Middle Grade/ Fantasy
By: Anthony L. Manna
Rating: 🌟🌟🌟 1/2
When the author approached me with a very kind request to review the book, I was hesitant at first, but the story is a middle grade story with Greek mythology, Folklore and illustrations thrown in and I couldn’t say no to that! These are things that I love very much so I think I kind of had higher expectations than I should have.
I know that I am not the targeted audience but I still enjoyed the book, it kind of read like a parable which kind of made me nostalgic as this is the kind of story that initially got me into reading.
The story does provide what is expected for younger readers, with a meaningful journey, some nice rhymes here and there and repetitions which are acceptable. I kind of did not like the illustrations which affected my enjoyment of the story because they made it look less professional and this is just a personal opinion. I do not consider myself an artist but I can draw and I expected more from an illustrator! I do not know if it is their won style and maybe others liked it but it did not click for me simply!
Summary: I think it is a great story for younger readers who are looking for something more challenging but not hard. It does have illustrations and mythology and it is simply a cool story. I do recommend it for younger readers!
