I am busy working on several Thanksgiving related entries. I am keeping is short and sweet today. Here is a noteworthy selection I recently came across.
I picked up The Luck of the Loch Ness Monster (ages 6-11) by A.W. Flaherty when I saw it was “A Tale of a Picky Eater” in hopes of inducing my “picky eater” in to being less particular. J Using gray and neutral hued watercolors, the end result of children throwing out their morning oatmeal is illustrated in a whimsical manner. The story is an interesting combination of folk tale and realism. It provides an explanation on the Loch Ness monster sightings (and origin) that is good-humored and imaginative. If you enjoy folk tales and myths, you will likely find this creative narrative to be amusing.
