My Crazy Purple Pen
3 August 2013
My Crazy Purple Pen is a wonderful children's book which tells the story of an owner and their mischievous purple pen. It's narrated in rhyme from the owner's point of view which makes it both enjoyable and fun to read. It is also beautifully illustrated; bright, vibrant and colourful which children will love.
What I liked most about the book is that I found the story to be incredibly funny. There are humorous moments which both children and adults will most likely laugh at. This is backed up with delightful illustrations which clearly show the characters' expressions to certain situations. The colours have also been carefully used to make the book appealing to both boys and girls, regardless of the fact that the pen is purple.
I do think that the book could have done with a few more situations where we see / read about the crazy purple pen's antics, but other than that I think that the overall length of the book is suitable for children. I did find that one or two of the illustrations were a little too close to the text when reading but this doesn't matter as much as I'm sure children will still enjoy and engage with the story!
Overall My Crazy Purple Pen is a wonderfully written and illustrated book which both children and adults will enjoy. Along with the rhyming text, humorous story and appealing illustrations it's definitely a book that children will want to pick up and read over and over again.
