Book Review: Awesome Friendship Adventures by Katy Ant
This is one of the few early reader books I’ve had the chance to read, but it was so worth it. The story felt like a trip down memory lane when friendships seemed few and far between. But it was much more than that.
The tale of Arthur and his golden feather is a fascinating tale as well as a reminder that even the most seemingly popular person can also be one of the loneliest. Arthur is such an individual. His golden feather supposedly grants wishes which means Arthur has lots of visitors, but none of them stay. They only want to make their wish and give him a gift and be one their way, leaving him a very lonely fellow. His parents were taken from him when he was very young, and despite the numerous times he’s made a wish on his golden feather he still has no family, or any real friends.
But when his feather is stolen by Evil Hawk, Arthur goes on a harrowing quest to retrieve the feather. Along the way he meets an assortment of other characters, some are lonely outcasts like himself, others have close families, but each of them has problems of their own that he does his best to help solve. Before long he realizes he is forming a close band of friends who truly care about him as much as he does them.
Together they not only find more friends and adventures, Arthur finds what really makes a family and true friends.
The author tells the tale with style and smiles, while never talking down to the reader (regardless of age). The book is also filled with wonderful artwork full of color and fun that makes the story even more fun to read again and again.
An excellent early reader tale. I highly recommend it!
