I like pets which are different from the normal so this one about a weasel looks interesting enough. Nice review.

I think this book would be an interesting one for kids. I like the idea of photographs instead of drawn illustrations as this makes the story more realistic. Thanks for the review.

I definitely like ferrets and the photos in this book look OK, but the writing style in it makes me cringe! Think I’ll be passing on this one.

Thank you for sharing your review with us. I also enjoyed the real photos implemented within the drawings. In my opinion the simplicity of the book is to keep the attention of younger kids - if the plot or vocabulary is too complicated, they will lose interest, because they don’t understand it.

I love the review but the front cover is not really attractive for the children of nowadays instead it should be more colourful

A book like this for kids is crafted specially and i love the fact that the book is short and filled with illustrative pictures. I think the author could also made the book in series. Nice review.

I've never really given pet ferrets a second thought as they're not legal in my state, but this story does sound cute. It's definitely unconventional both in that it's a children's book about a pet ferret and that it uses photographs instead of drawn or painted illustrations, so I think it's at least worth a look. Thank you for the helpful review.

Love your analysis of this book. A nice children's book with companionship as its central theme. Photographic illustrations will surely enhance the reader's experience. I hope the author develops the plot further in later editions. Thank you for the well-written review.

This sounds interesting. I am still wondering on the lessons being passed across but I guess one will draw them while reading the book. Thanks for the insightful review.

I think this review has been extra gracious and given more detail than was perhaps necessary but I am sure the author would appreciate the level of effort.

Wow I really enjoyed your review. You took the time to grasp the purpose and content in the book.
But the path I’ve chosen has always been the right one, and I wouldn’t have had it any other way. :)
