This fantastic book begs for illustrations, and a print version to be read aloud at bed-time.
Loe the Dyslexic Lion and other feebles' collection of poems is intelligent, funny and heart-warming. A joy to read aloud, the book is aimed at children, but is likely to appeal to grown-ups too. Because book tells it's message well, and it's message is pure chicken soup wisdom for issues that are at once timeless, relevant and important. I think that with the right publisher it has the potential cross-over appeal of other supposed children's books like Stargirl.
Granted there are a few very nits I could pick if I got out a very fine-tooth comb, but many of these are due to the Kindle format, which is a mixed blessing and not the most natural for the book. In my view much of the intro is too detailed for it's audience. And there are also a couple of bits of poetic license that niggled; man does occasionally get eaten by other animals, and there is rain in Africa for example.
But the beautiful, touching poems made me laugh, and they communicate important messages. And as the mother of a bright, beautiful and bespectacled four year old I look forward to reading this book at at bed time and dipping into it when my daughter struggles to understand difficult, but inevitable issues. And if an illustrated print version / audio version became available I can think of at least five children of varying ages, my daughter included, who I would buy it for immediately.
