First rate story, Excellent artwork
I read this to my kids and was laughing myself. The professional reviewer didn't care for the artwork. I'm an artist myself and realize the technical aspects of illustration have become formulaic. I found it refreshing to see these extremely well rendered whimsical watercolours. Some of my favourite books from childhood were of this ilk. I'm old enough to remember books of a less practical, structured formula. The illustrations' colour scheme does convey a mood effectively which was likely lost on the aforementioned reviewer. The mood made me nostalgic for an Ireland I remember fondly. I've nothing to do with the artist personally, but I enjoyed their work enough to feel the sting of such criticism.
