Good Evening! I have a glorious review for a children’s book. S.H.E.L.L by Chris White.
Thank you to Anne at Random Things Tours and Chris for providing me a copy for review.
STAR WARS’ meets ‘TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES’ in this sparkling, action-packed, highly original comic galactic adventure with a feel-good vibe.
Sure to inspire young readers to be their own person, to embrace team-values, to balance thinking and feeling with action, and to reach for the good in all their endeavours, filled with characters that make a lasting impress.
I read S.H.E.L.L with my 6yr old daughter, Alexis as I wanted to get her opinion on the book, since it is after all, a children book.
At first she was a little overwhelmed with the characters but soon got comfortable with them and enjoyed the story. She liked visiting all the various planets and found herself laughing at the characters quite a lot.
I thought that the story was well put together and clearly ticked all those boxes that we want for our children’s books. I particularly liked the illustrations throughout and they really added to the overall comedy and feel for the book.
Overall we rated this book a solid 4 stars and look forward to reading more in the series.
