Children's Book Review: The Book that Zack Wrote
The Book that Zack Wrote
Written by: Ethan Long
Published by: Blue Apple Books, 2011
This is the frog… that kissed the fox… that chased the pig…that oinked in the book that Zack wrote.
A fresh and funny re-telling of “The House That Jack Built” with a rhyming refrain, a kooky cast of characters and comic-style illustrations. Includes a separate composition book for kids to create their own illustrated story.
* If you know the story "The House That Jack Built" than this story will be familiar to you. The first thing that catches your eye when looking at the book is that it looks and feels like a composition notebook. As you open the book the pages are lined like the inside of a notebook. My daughter couldn't believe it and kept telling me, "Look! It's a real notebook!" The illustrations are colorful and humorous "doodles" and the story has "handwritten" text. There's a surprise ending and you see other humorous books that Zack has written. Definitely a creative and different type of book!
Family Rating: 2 thumbs up!
