Willy by Geert De Kockere

Disclosure:  I received an advance copy of this book from Librarything’s Early Review Program

Willy by Geert De Kockere


Willy has four huge legs, and a body big enough for two. His ears are so big the make a storm as they flap, and he has a small tail with a ridiculous brush on the end. But all this doesn’t matter, because it turns out that these are the very things that make Willy so loved and welcomed wherever he goes.

What I liked about the book: I liked the message in this book – that we are all different and those differences should be celebrated.  Size and appearance don’t matter.

What I didn’t like about the book:  Though the book is written for young children it uses too many words. The message gets lost.  Some of the words are too hard for the intended audience.  It’s a good story, but there are better ones for young children.  I would not purchase this for my school library.
