Tales of Tossledowns-WOG

The beetle in this book is one of the smartest I have ever read about. He is stuck in a spiders web and is being prepared for a meal by the spider herself. Similar to the book ’1,001 Arabian Nights’, the beetle offers to read a story to the spiders that he may have a chance to live.

The characters in this book are both cute and funny. Each of the different creatures had their own personalities and were very laid out and understandable. This book was not only a good read but also had a few morals in it. Such as learning patience, having consequences for things even if you believed what you did was right, and respecting others.

The giants in the book although annoying, were also very funny. Generally people are scared of giants, but in this book they were very laughable. They were silly, goofy, and clumsy. The giants even made me laugh out loud a few times.

Overall this book is great for younger children, ages 6-10. Preferably more advanced because of high vocabulary. This book did seem to drag on a bit, but overall was a fantastic read that I would recommend to almost anybody.
