    7. This is a humorous tale of a band of explorers out on a hunt It s a wordless book and the story is easy to follow Our girls narrated most of the tale while we all pointed out various details The author used pen and ink, watercolor, and colored pencils to create the pictures and the result is colorful and cartoonish I recognized the premise of the story and started asking questions that led our oldest to ask if I d seen the book before I hadn t, but it was pretty obvious Overall, it s a fun story [...]

    19. A tiny group of hunters travel through hills, mountains, and forests on a dangerous expedition that ends in a surprise This wordless picture book is a suitable book for the young non reader There is lots of subtle action that will keep the readers poring over the pages This is certainly a book that requires a lot of repeat visits especially to gleam the story line of the book The quiet artwork and unusual caricature of the characters make this a good picture Though not a story for read aloud, th [...]

    20. This is definitely a standard picture book, like Mr Wuffles, the author uses no words but kids would defnitely enjoy it because of the amazing story and pictures The hunters look like the munchkins in The Wizard of Oz but they are much smaller They go throughout the forest looking for something to hunt, but they get too afraid of everything they encounter Finally, they steal a marshmallow from a little girl who is camping This was published in 2014 and would make a wonderful addition to any clas [...]

    23. Wordless wonder in a great forest Little people leave their village to explore They encounter forest creatures and flee for safety Eventually they discover something large and sweet that they take back to their village to share with everyone.It s quirky, funny, and a bit vintage in the illustrations It reminds me of a retro cartoon, which are always fun to view.Reviewed from a library copy.

    24. The characters in this wordless book made me think of the Minnipins from The Gammage Cup, as did their little quest into the mountains Unfortunately, the middle of the book, where they troop past animal after animal after animal becomes monotonous quickly, and the ending, though somewhat amusing, does not feel like an appropriate pay off for the lengthy journey the hunters have just taken I really wanted this to be great, and it was just not.

    27. A completely charming story with tons of kid appeal.The smallness of the gnome like expedition party quickly becomes apparent as they stand underneath toadstools and the ladybug is the size of a large dog when standing next to them Great perspective here that viewers will love.The toad seems very Wiesner like.

    29. While I enjoyed the combination of cartoon and realistic imagery, I really didn t connect with this book and didn t get excited about the characters I also felt like they were just wandering and we didn t know their purpose until the end and even then it didn t provide great context I don t understand where they lived in this world, why this group went in particular, etc.

    30. Beautiful illustrations of an adorable hunting party, out for an adventure The miniature size of the little people and their Munchkin like houses are charming and the art style is reminiscent of older cartoon drawings Sure to please adults, but I m not sure if kids will respond as strongly to the cartoon drawings they are a bit too TinTin Popeye Asterix for picture book readers.
