~I received The Magical Fantastical Fridge for the purpose of reviewing. Opinions and stories are my own.~
Here is a cute new picture book where #1 New York Times Bestselling novelist Harlan Coben partners with a talented debut illustrator, Leah Tinari, in the funny adventure, The Magical Fantastical Fridge.
It’s family dinner night, and Walden would like to be anywhere other than the kitchen in the middle of chores. Suddenly his wish is granted: He is magically swooped into one of his own drawings on the fridge, and finds himself on a one-of-a-kind adventure. After battling a crayon monster, he catches a plane ride into an old photo, escapes a troop of monkeys by cannonballing into an aquarium ticket, survives an ice-maker earthquake, and more. Kids will love studying the dynamic, comic-book-inspired illustrations in this zany, surprise-filled journey that culminates in a heartfelt appreciation of family.
I have read a ridiculous amount of children’s books over the years but I can honestly say this is the first picture book I have read where the character gets sucked into the items decorated on the fridge! A child’s imagination knows no bounds!!! After reading this book my girls made up their own story based off the pictures on our own fridge. Mainly photos but they laughed like crazy at the thought of jumping through each of them.
This is one adorable book that I think every young child will enjoy. The illustrations are fun and the story itself is unique. A great addition to any bookshelf!
