What’s it about?
A book written in rhyme that teaches children about the appropriate time to use electronics. Most importantly how dangerous it is to text and fly/drive.
My Review of One Creepy Street: Annica’s Broom
This One Creepy Street book was more appealing than the other one. The bright white writing was much easier to see than the font that was used one One Creepy Street: The Spider on the Web. The rhymes flowed easily and the story was well-written for the most part. The illustrations, as usual, were wonderful. The bright colors and offbeat characters instantly draw the eye, and you can spend a minute easily just looking at all the details. My six year old enjoyed listening to me read it to her.
I love that these books set out to teach the modern child something important. There aren’t very many books out there that address issues specific to children being raised now. I applaud Lee Jordan for focusing on this niche.
There are only two things that weigh negatively against the book. First (and definitely the most important) was that it just felt a little too long. Both of us felt like it dragged on just a bit. Second, there were some punctuation errors scattered throughout that need to be tidied up.
Overall, it was fun to read, and considering the content, I would definitely recommend picking it up. It might not be the best thing ever written, but it does fill a gap that very few books do. The fact that it does it in rhyme and with cute illustrations at the same time is just a plus!
