A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this book.
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that kids will enjoy these letters and may even be inspired to write some of their own.
Is It Any Good?
Felix's previous world tours took him to famous cities and into different time periods; now he travels to various environments, and the result is less clear and focused. Children may not understand what the moon, the rainforest, and Australia have in common. The letters, however, are as delightful as ever. In one, Felix encloses a sheet of semaphore signals, which kids can use to make secret-code messages.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
