It is so tempting to write this review backwards.
This book, in every element, is perfect. The character who leads us through the day, the surrounding characters, the energy, the illustrations, and the fullness of the experience... all perfect. Makes you realize the perfection in your world, to read it. Yup. It's that good. Right down to the dedication page, written by Sofia herself (yup, she's real).
Really. Give it a shot. You'll thank yourself later.
This is a beautiful, fun story for young readers. The illustrations are colorful and engaging and the storyline is funny and will capture the hearts of readers, both young and old! I just ordered the other books this author has written and can't wait to see them. Hope to give them as Christmas gifts in one big package. Lovely!
One day Sophia decides to do everything backwards, with delightfully funny results. Mark Gabriele has created an imaginative book with lovely illustrations that will have young children laughing out loud, whether being read to, or reading it themselves. We enjoyed it.
