Reviewed by Mamta Madhavan for Readers' Favorite The Bezert by Maria Knier is a surreal story where readers are taken into the world of Bezert who lived in his space known as the Hisonly Place. It is a safe place to save his thoughts and feelings. One day he travels from his safe island and spies a gift box. The box is inviting and Bezert gets into the box. Bezert follows the smallish light inside but loses track of it slowly. Bezert's journey is inspirational and uplifting and will take readers on a path of self-discovery and help them unlock their hidden strengths. The book is unique and original. The character's name is also very unusual and unique. Readers will be fascinated by the language and also the illustrations. All the illustrations are magical and they convey what the author is trying to express. They also enhance the surreal and dreamy feeling of the verses. The rhyming verses are lyrical and give good pace and movement to the story. The verses on 'change' and 'fear' are very motivating to readers to discover their strengths and erase their fears. As readers progress through the verses, they also learn to trust their feelings. The book is a good bedtime storybook and can also be used in classrooms and school libraries for read aloud sessions. Though written for children, it's a book that has many dimensions to it and will definitely help a child grow in his thinking.The book stimulates readers on all levels; mentally, emotionally and visually. It's visually stunning and has a great concept. I loved it.

As an educator, grandmother, childcare giver, and children's literature aficionado, I find something new to love in The Bezert with each reading. the fanciful language dances across the page and delights the tongue with a playful whimsy matched by its incredible illustrations, while the message of the book resonates deeply with readers of all ages. As anyone who has read books to little ones knows, musicality is important (especially when you end up reading the same book over and over again, which you will surely do with this fine book), and The Bezert boasts musicality in spades. This book is a treasured fixture in both my library and my heart.

A fun, yet meaningful story about growing, learning and trusting inner voice. The illustrations are beautiful, each one telling a story of their own with unique depth and layers. Each character is brought to life with such personality- it easily evokes the childlike feeling of being completely enveloped in a fantasy world. Still, the themes and messages are very real and essential life lessons for all ages.

I have enjoyed The Bezert on many levels; as an illustrated children's book, an inspiring prose piece, and as a meditative journal.  It is not a book to be read quickly, and for that reason, enjoyed thoroughly on so many levels.  My 9 year enjoys the lilt of the language and the illustrations.  I love the not-so-hidden message The Bezert has for all of us.  Sweet, inspiring and honest.

I've heard The Bezert described as, "A book with presence," and that description is spot-on when I consider the depth I feel when reading it. In other words, I really feel like I'm doing something that matters when I share this book with my little friends (and my grown-up friends).

This book is simply amazing! It's not what I was expecting, but the journey of Bezert was truly inspirational. I'm in college and some of my fellow classmates already want me to bring it in so they can read it!

The Bezert is a wonderful tale of learning to trust our instincts as we face the challenges and choices in life.   By reflecting on life’s lessons with clarity we are empowered to see truth, weather change, and take risks to find and stay on our own true path.  Adults and children alike should read this book and celebrate their power within and their gifts to the world.  Rich, quirky and delightful illustrations make this an excellent gift book!  Graduates would especially appreciate this story as they enter a time of uncertainty and vulnerability in life.

What a delightful friend the quirky Bezert is to anyone on a journey of discovery and courage! Age-range appeal will be enormous for this engaging story as Bezert's quest knows no boundaries. The amazing illustrations are a perfect companion to the compelling, poetic prose. This gem of a book belongs at the bedside, on the coffee table, and in every student's backpack.
