Review for Chimpanzees for Tea

Review for Chimpanzees for Tea

26026066For magical reasons my bookstore magically had this one in stock (1. it isn’t even out officially, and 2. it is in English, so lots of magic).

I saw this one on twitter and just knew I wanted to read this one a lot (yes, I am still a cover lover) so imagine my delight when I saw this one at my bookstore. 🙂 And it sure was really nice, though the ending was a bit of a disappointment.

The book starts off with our main character having to do groceries for his mother. At first everything goes fine, he has a list to check, but then the list is blow away. The little kid does try his best to remember all he needs, but as he passes stuff he forgets and/or replaces what he needs with what he sees. And so the book goes on, each page detailing something he loses, and something he gains, and well then… well you will have to read the book. I am not going to say anything more.

I just loved what the little guy saw as he was on road to the store. It was so imaginative and so much fun, I just couldn’t wait to flip the page to see where the kid would end up now, and who he would meet this time.

The ending was a bit of a disappointment mostly because it felt weird and out of place. I also had some expectations from the mother which didn’t happen.

The art is pretty good, I really love how everything is drawn, how the backgrounds are made. The use of colours is perfect for this story, not too bright, but also not too faded.

I would recommend this book to everyone, it is a fun, hilarious book and you will be curious about what happens so you will keep on flipping the pages.
