This book is a thriller a sure shot thriller, for kids as well as adults. This is in fact the strong forte of the author. The story is narrated by a cute Torty, named Leatherback.

Me and my son both have loved the book, it is an interactive book as it has kid’s activities like colouring, find the difference etc. Difficult words have been explained so that kids can understand what they are reading and don’t just run through the pages.

The high points of this book is the way in which it deals with many emotions. Right from fear of unknown, separation anxiety, competition, empathy, bullying, compassion to courage. It will help open up your child to discuss what’s happening in their life, you can also site a incident from the story and check what your child feels about it and if they have been through such a situation. Generally, kids do not want to speak about the emotions that are not very feel good, that ways this book can be a great help.

As of Low point, as I was so engrossed reading, I couldn’t find any. Just that sometimes imaginations are too far from reality but that is OK and some stories will leave you sad as well. But the purpose is to learn from them and move on.

Just grab a copy of this book at amazon, if you want to know did Lolita make it back safely?

    Love the activities in the book. Are these supposed to be codes to a discovery? That would be quite engaging.

      The readers age is perfect for my nephew and neice. I think they are going to love the thrill read as well the engrossing activities

    1. Because that is also an emotion that we need to prepare kids for.
      This book in particular is mostly fun though.

    My niece is very fond of fiction reads, painting and drawing…I think this might be a good option for her and to keep her busy for a week 😛

    1. If she is 6+ then surely. This book deals with most of the emotions kids this age undergo right from school bullying to stress between parents.
