5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely picture book and educational allegory., 25 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: My Name is Bob: An Illustrated Picture Book (Kindle Edition)
A beautifully illustrated picture book, great quality and a very touching story. This book is beautifully crafted, I love the variety of picture sizes and the way Gerald Kelley's style changes throughout the book. What is particularly special is the allegorical aspect of the story. This is the story of a drift into homelessness and a redemption through the love of others. How easy it was for Bob to become a lost soul through one piece of misfortune and a life changing mistake. How sad it is that Bob is shunned, ignored and overlooked by others once he is homeless. Like many homeless souls Bob no longer recognises himself and is reduced to living in a box in clear sight and yet quite invisible. For Bob's story we could read James' story or the story of any person who finds themselves without a home and vulnerable. This is a lovely story and clever with it.
