Today is my stop on the Kaleidoscopic Book Tour for this book. Thank you to Clink Street Publishing for a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
My eldest loves sea creatures, especially the weird and mysterious ones that lurk in the midnight zone. So when I saw that Big Splash Circus centred on an anglerfish, I knew this would be a book that he would love.
The animation is very cutesy with pastel colours and soft edges, which many young readers will enjoy as it makes the characters look very friendly. My boy much prefers to see more realistic images, but sharp teeth and angry faces definitely wouldn’t appeal to most children his age and I love how original the animation feels.
The story is written in a very straightforward way which means that it would be a great book for young ones to practise reading with. It also gives a great message about finding your strengths, being true to yourself, and not being afraid of standing out from the crowd, which is a very important lesson for young readers that is told in a way that is very easy for them to understand.
