4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful story, Nov. 12 2010

(TOP 50 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: The North Star (Hardcover)
In this story a young boy is learning about life - first to crawl and then to walk. But soon a cat is telling him he must hurry up as he is falling behind and will lose his way. He starts following all the signs, even when they become very confusing and often contradictory. Soon his life seems like a chore or task to stay on the path and stay caught up with others. But all along he is becoming less and less happy. Then he wanders from the path and starts to find an enjoyment in nature again.

It had been a few years since I read a book by Peter H. Reynolds, when his book Ish came to mind. I tracked down some of his newer books and was really impressed with both the stories and the illustrations. I love Reynolds, who has a very distinctive style of illustration, often minimalist in the extreme with just a small drawing in the center or each page without having to cover every page from edge to edge. The artwork is adorable and the stories always wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect alternative to "Oh, the places you'll go!", Aug. 12 2010

This review is from: The North Star (Hardcover)
This a great book for a graduation gift. It's the story of a young boy on a journey and how he makes his own path to travel instead of following everyone else. If you're looking for something else to give besides "Oh the places you'll go!", this is it.
