Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This was a very difficult book to rate. The illustrations are reminiscent of Dr. Seuss books. They are bright, colourful and quirky. The story is also cute to a point. Twins in Scotland, Liam and Emma are bored. Their mother suggests they go and meet their new neighbour who has moved from America. Abby is a girl the same age and is sad about leaving her best friend behind. The twins ask her if she wants to meet their best friend. After searching all over the house and yard, the twins pull out their bible and tell Abby it is their best friend. This is where I have the problem. As a Christian, the love of God and his son Jesus Christ is the important thing, not the book it is written down in. Their best friend should have been either Jesus or God, not the book their message is written in. Not sure if I would use this book or not due in my opinion, to that glaring mistake. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
