This book is pretty cute! There's a lot that goes on, and there are some unanswered questions, but there's a moral to the story that's heartwarming and sweet. The illustrations are extremely detailed and pretty. Read full review

Review: The Island of the Skog

User Review  - Steve_sonderman - Goodreads

5 Stars! Excellent story with so many teaching points for young children. Great to teach kids to not make assumptions about others, especially about those that are different or that you are not comfortable with. Great illustrations and an entertaining story all around. Really enjoyed it. Read full review
