Why yes, this book is quite fabulous. It has a cute story for kids based on Snow White, except most of the characters are ponies. Bright colors, cute characters, and even some humor adults will appreciate - you can't go wrong.

The gorgeous book for all ages is more than an adventure through a forest. The lush illustrations play with negative space; some of the elements rise up from the page adding a tactile dimension to the book. Part meditation, part expedition, this book contains more than meets the eye.

I love Kadir Nelson’s artwork. He’s done some of my favorite New Yorker covers lately, and this book is a shining example of his ability to tell a great story through imagery. The allegory presented is simple but beautiful, and it’s a good lesson leading into a new school year. I also feel like the book is timely for the peak of summer harvests.

Think a group of costumed kids can't scare Darth Vader? In the words of the iconic Sith Lord, I find your lack of faith disturbing. Adam Rex's impeccable comedic timing makes this book a laugh-out-loud joy from start to finish (and yes, more than one Porter Square bookseller was literally laughing out loud).
