About the Book
This book introduces the lonely and scared, Peter the Pixie. He arrives in a place that he doesn't know. He is wet, cold, and hungry. He finds shelter. Then something happens that makes him leave that shelter. Where he ends up, he meets the ants. What happens next, you will need to read the book to find out.
The main characters in this book is Peter the Pixie, who arrives in this place on a leaf and who needs to find shelter, warmth and food and the other main characters are the ants, who help Peter. This book is a children's picture book with beautiful illustrations that help the story. There are no illustrations that don't belong there.
What I liked about the book was there is a lesson to be learned in this series. The author wrote this book in a way that it can stand on its own without the rest of the books that follow. The layout of the book makes it so that children can follow along. There is an illustration on each page. There was nothing that I disliked about this book. I am not a child but I can't wait to see what happens next. This book caught my attention from the beginning with its descriptive vocabulary. While reading this, I could picture the setting in my mind. My favorite part was the ending when the ant tells Peter why they helped him. I did think it was funny when in the beginning of the book, Peter tried to jump to the Rock and fell in the water.
I would recommend this book to children from the ages of 2 to 6. I believe that children who love to hear about fairy tales, myths, and folklore, would enjoy this. I also think that this is a great book for parents to read to their children.
