I just read this book to my 7 and 5 year old sons and they absolutely loved it! The 5 year old wanted to take it around the next day to just look at the illustrations. The next night they wanted me to read it to them again. I haven't read any of Roald Dahl's books before now, but this book has sure made me want to.
I loved this book when I was a younger child. I think that it illustrates a good message for children, that little people can conquer big things. The illustrations are also great. They are drawn from interesting angles emphasising the size of everything and also create moods thst relate very well to what is going on in thast part of the book. The illustrations add to the story and make it more appealing to younger children as well as older.
I think 'The Minpins' was a GREAT story, and anyone that likes wild beasts and has an wild inamgination will love 'The MinPins!!' ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
