Review: Hippochondriac By Micky Morag
Let me say this from the start. It looks like a children's book, but it is not. It is an adult humor book.
I guess this type of book isn't my favorite. I sort of got it and laughed pretty loudly at some points. I was even able to think of people in my life to compare to the characters. I was about to not do the review because I didn't know what to say about it other than it was sort of funny and the pictures are great. Then my 17 year old son began to read it when I left it open. I could hear him laughing two rooms away. I was like huh? This book was his cup of tea. His sense of humor is much different then mine. So this is his review:
This book was great. The drawings were funny and went along with the entire book. It even had a lesson in it. No matter what is trying to hold you back you should always be there for a friend. It also kind of made me think of bullying. The Hippo just wanted friends and he found a place he was accepted and loved. I didn't blame him for not wanting to go back to his old home where they treated him like crap.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has a real sense of humor like me. You have to be able to think about it and just not expect everything to pop out at you like my mom does!
I received this book free in return for a review all opinions are my own...and David's.
