I received this book for free from the author. This book was sent to me through Bostick Communications. The author sent me this book in exchange for an honest review. I have previously reviewed another children's book by this author which can also be found on my blog.

Review: I would like to thank the author for sending me a copy of this book. This is a children's book but, being a child at heart, I really enjoyed reading this book and the message that the story portrays. This book will be staying in my book collection for when the time comes that I have children of my own. When I do have a child this will be one of the books that I read to them even before they are born. This book teaches about friends and always listening to what you are being told as it may be important and helpful information. Children will take away from this story that they do not know everything and are not right all the time. They will also learn that it is important to listen to and respect the opinion of others. Through a story is the perfect way to teach life lessons to children as they will take it as just a fun adventure story but will be learning about the meaning behind the story without getting bored of being taught things. I would recommend this book to any mums out there who enjoy reading to their children or to anyone who knows children (brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews) and enjoys reading to them.
