FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
In this book, you will find a collection of short stories that will give you a spook. I know it did me. Combined with the colorful illustrations, the stories will have you screeching (maybe that will just be me) in fear. Each story is as unique as this book is as a whole.
Honestly, I was a little in shock of the illustrations. It is like reading a picture book as a child might. I had it in my mind that the illustration wouldn't make a difference in the "spook" factor of the stories. I was surprised when they did. I mean, I grabbed this book because of the name and the cat. I mean, I am a book lover, so, of course, I love my cats. It surprised me what the different images did to each story. I found that they made visualization easier for me.
As for the stories, I have to say they were strange but easy to be sucked in. The writing works well with the pictures. I always try to rate books with collections like this one as a whole, but I have to say I loved the individual story named Sunday. It had me freaked out.
I wouldn't say I was just terrified by this book, but each story presents the reader with a new reaction. As a whole, I enjoyed this book.
