Welp, this one sounded better than it actually was. I thought the adventure would last a bit longer than 1 page. Really, just 1 page. 😐 He probably travelled pretty far, but it would have been nice if we, the readers, would have seen that.
Next up is Akita who is going to help Beaver and does an outstanding terrible job at it. Does Akita really think that that Beaver lives in a cave underwater (fully submerged) or lives in mouse houses? Then again, given the proportions and that they aren’t that good at times, I can slightly imagine that Akita may confuse the Beaver for some other creature. 😛 But still. Akita isn’t smart.
Sometimes repetition works. But in this one? Especially combined with the stupidity of Akita? No. It didn’t work, and I was just flicking through the book on my tablet, feeling bored.
The ending was, of course, no surprise. The title spoils it already, plus it is a children’s book, they generally go for the good/happy endings.
There is a lot going on in the pictures, at times a bit too much taking away the focus of the “story”.
So yeah, I am disappointed, when I spotted this book on Netgalley I was really hoping it would be a great picture book.
