2.0 out of 5 stars Flummoxed, 11 Feb. 2014
This review is from: A Boy and a Bear in a Boat (Kindle Edition)
My children and I chose this book as our bedtime tale about two months ago and I have to admit that we have only just finished. We found it incredibly hard going and kept moonlighting to other titles before feeling obliged to come back to this tale in the hope it would improve over time. The pace was far too slow for my ESL 8 and 4 year old kids and we found the lack of storyline immensely frustrating. Perhaps this is a tale within a tale but we couldn't decipher it. I'm afraid the lessons about building up unusual friendships or going on journeys of (self) discovery were rather swamped by the book's bad weather and boy's bad moods. Disappointing.
