what's it about...

Patroosh is a cheeky pelican who always wants more. He'll even take the food right out of your hand, or flap his big wings until you drop it in the sand. But after an unexpected event, and a random act of kindness, this pelican's life is about to change forever.

my review.................................

Oh my, how absolutely delightful. This is what I’ve been talking about in my reviews of children’s books of late. A fun book, bright beautiful illustrations, and...a subliminal message of values or even just being nice to one another. The story is about our avian or web-footed friends. It’s about people too and finally, about responsibility.

The prose rhyming gives this  an easy flow to read and it’s just as easy to hear. Don’t be afraid of the 40+ pages for your toddler. This is a book with big illustrations and a few words on each page. Its layout seems to make the rhyming even more fun.

After a small amount of research, it looks to me as if Renee James has plenty of communications and production experience. If she has written another children’s book, I could not find mention of it. Parents better hope there are more to come!

read an excerpt...

The pelicans are fast, especially Patroosh. “What about me, you big greedy bird?” Seamus,
the little seagull, really wanted to be heard.

Seamus was starving and his tummy was rumbling.

RUMBLE RUMBLE

Patroosh was so full up that his tummy was grumbling.

GRUMBLE GRUMBLE

He floated around with his belly up, sunbathing, gloating, and singing, “YUP YUP YUP YUUUUUP.”
