Review for Oh, Armadillo!: This Party’s All Wrong!

Oh, Armadillo!: This Party's All Wrong! Ellie Irving , Robert Starling, Humour, Picture Book ,Armadillo, Party, Animals, Picture Book, Red, YellowI received this book from Netgalley/the publisher in exchange of an honest review.

I fell in love with that cover and the title, but then I read the blurb and was even more convinced! I just had to have it!

In this adorable and fun looking book we meet Armadillo. He is a bit weird, sometimes jumbles things up, but he wants to do something big. So he decides to hold a party. I loved seeing him make some very pretty invitations. I had fun seeing which animals he was going to invite (apes, lemurs, and more) + see if they were going to come or not. Plus, they had some questions on things that they were looking forward to at the party. From cake to musical chairs, but as you may guess, this is Armadillo and things go hilariously wrong. Well, OK, it was hilarious for me, but I could also imagine that the Armadillo’s feelings may be hurt when he figured that out (or when animals would tell him). But I was surprised at what happened next and how Armadillo reacted. It just made me smile and I was so delighted. That is one way to go for it~ And I wished I could have been part of this party, dang!

That last message was just perfection! It made me smile~

I loved that the book was all in rhyme! It made the story more fun, more original, and more silly! It made me smile.

The art in this book was so much fun and I loved how brightly coloured the armadillo was but also his surroundings.

All in all, a silly and fun book about an Armadillo who wants to hold a party and all that happens next. It made me smile, laugh, giggle, and many times I wanted to just step in the story. Recommended.

Star rating, 4.5 stars
