I’ll be honest, I was a bit skeptical when I first came across this hyperactive explosion of colour in my library, but I have since been thoroughly converted.
This. Book. Is. AWESOME!
Each spread is a riot of humour, heart, colour and detail. Just look at this spread!!!
There’s just so much to see and explore – it’s like Where’s Waldo but without any specific objective beyond simply enjoying and appreciating each scene.
I love the zaniness of the story and its characters (Trevor the magic mushroom is a personal favourite), and there’s a slight message about not making assumptions or jumping to conclusions (the supposed baddies turn out to be not quite as our heroes were expecting), but really this is just a hilarious bit of crazy, rainbow-coloured fluffy fun, and I’m all for that.
It’s a pretty good laugh for adult readers, too!
There’s a sequel on the way, too – I can’t wait.
