Review for The Middle Kid

Review for The Middle Kid

The Middle Kid, Steven Weinberg, Pizza, Pizzabox, Children, Children's Books, Humour, Siblings,I received this book from Netgalley/publisher in exchange of an honest review.

This book just looked so funny going by the cover, and the blurb closed the deal. I just had to try out this book. I was curious what it was being a middle child, see a day full of middle child-ness. I myself am a single kid, no brothers or sisters, so I just love books about siblings.

This book is a day in the life of a middle kid. We start at the very start of the day and end when everyone goes to sleep. We see that the middle child doesn’t have it the easiest. In the midst of an older brother and a younger sister. Which means during breakfast both OJ and milk all over his drawing. Hatching plans with his sister featuring the plushies. Haha, I was already worried that they would do things themselves, but thankfully not. And so the day continues and I loved each page, though well, OK, maybe not all pages as some just made me sad (like the older brother locking the younger one in a trunk in a dark attic… no just no). But most did! And I really enjoyed this peek in the life of a middle child. My favourite moment definitely was during the library visit, go mom!

The middle child, our MC, was such a fun character and I loved how he just kept bouncing around. I loved that he did drawings and he has such wonderful imagination. I hope he keeps on drawing and gets even more awesome at it.

The way the story is told is done brilliant. Sometimes a page of text, sometimes a couple of lines, but there are also text bubbles! It really made the story engaging and delightful.

I really love the art! It is so fun and playful and I love how expressive the characters are.

I enjoyed this book a lot and I would highly recommend it.

Star rating, 5 stars
