Review by Tintin, age 7
The Fantastic Mr. Wani
Author/illustrator: Kanako Usui
Mr. Wani is about a crocodile who is invited to the froggies' home. He met some animals along the way and the animals helped him get to the party. He gets to the froggies' home and has a thrilling time. I liked this book because it's funny and the pictures are beautiful. My favorite part is when Mr. Wani bumps into an elephant and there is smoke puffing out of his trunk. I would recommend this book to kids who like madcap books.
Editor's note: Both boys love this book and think it's hilarious. We've read it several times and each time we read about Mr. Wani bumping into the elephant's behind or acting as a sled for the penguins, there are many giggles. By the way, I've introduced the thesaurus to Tintin, in case you couldn't tell.
Here is Tintin's crocodile (or crocolator, actually), drawn the Ed Emberley way*:
