Profoundly beautiful. a mix of what makes a family, private tragedies, and how to overcome the odds. I love that authors are looking into the globe of a various type of diversity. Disabilities are often frowned upon in our society be it a quirk of the mind or body people look and treat you differently. This is shown through Vic as well Zuz and Baz. Angry shows us the meaning of family and the harsh reality that families aren't Norman Rockwell paintings.
A student of mine recommended Mosquitoland, and now, after completing Children of Appetite, I know I will buy it as well. David Arnold has written a unbelievable book about love, loss, survival, and it is written in the believable voices of the protagonists. Sharp tongued Coco, philosopher Baz, Angry the caregiver, and Vic, whose journey to say goodbye to his father becomes our own private journey. KOA is beautiful, sweet, and hopeful; just like life.

I definitely recommend this book regardless of your age. My daughter picked it up at school from one of her teachers. I read it since I was intrigued by the title. I found it funny, clever, thought provoking and simply an entertaining read. It was refreshing . The characters were well developed. I didn't figure out "who dunnit". Often I know long before the mystery is revealed. I thought it was very original as well. Can't say I read a book quite like it. Will have to read Mosquito land now to compare. I gave it five stars because I can't think of anything I didn't like about it. And latest I have to agree with Mr Arnold about all things pesto. Even though it has nothing g to do with the book.
read Mr Arnolds first book Mosquitoland. Love that one as well. I was satisfied to hear about his next book being published this fall. I will admit, the first few pages, I was not too happy, but I give a book about 10 to 20 % before I am done. I am so very glad I kept reading. This author gets to the core of problems that young people face today. Broken Homes, Abuse, Immigration from Third Globe countries, Love and sharing that love, Bullying, accepting people for their faults. Loved the characters. Vic and Angry are amazing kids. I have to admit my favorite was the foul mouthed Coco an 11 year old who has seen much problem in her young life. Tough on the outside, but a scared small girl inside. Would love to see this one as a film as well as Mosquitoland.
I intend to share this book with my teen book club. We loved Mosquitoland, and I'm sure they will search this novel as interesting to read. The characters and structure of the novel take you on a journey that is complicated and involving. A amazing read. MCT
Amazing book. Amazing concept. I loved both Vic and Angry and all the other characters. They were the kind of characters I wish as my mates in true life because they're living proof that no matter how hard life gets... you don't give e beginning was just so captivating, interestingly strange and you're probably wondering: "ah... did she accidently rate this book 2 stars? Maybe she meant 4?"Well, yes and ing is, I was so sure this was a 4 stars book for me. I loved the beginning and I was sure I would love the rest of it too.And while I did have fun the rest of the book as well, it was harder for me to read. Why? too a lot of descriptions of memories, places, characters and sometimes even overall weirdness that didn't create much sense, to be honest. I felt like there were so a lot of American inside jokes and references to locations and meal and other items in the U.S, that an international like me could never understand. I didn't even visit the U.S, allow alone lived there. For me, those jokes and references were completely alien. Honestly? Sometimes it felt like I was reading this book in a language I didn't understand but knew e amazing news: for those of you who live\lived\are familiar with the U.S culture, this book should be just for you (given that you have fun a amazing - if strange - contemporary romance).Because despite my rating (which, if we're being technical here, is 2.5 stars), this book is a amazing deal of wonderful. It's unique, it's interesting and it has amazing characters (one of which has a rare physical disability).Wow, I don't think I ever talked so positively about a book I rated so low. This book is so not conventional that in a weird method it makes h.
I didn't like it. There were no adds but.. on second hand it didn't work properly. I don't wish to be mean, but this android game does NOT work. I don't recommend that you download it. Because you will most likely end up deleting it. It's not worth the trouble. Thanks!
Found a method to explain Santa Claus to my granddaughter, just read her this book. She also believes in Unicorns.
I like this boo. It is a attractive story for a kid to read and understand dreams. Truly awesome story
My 3 year old pointed to this book on the kindle so we ordered it. There were no illustrations in the book and the story was fun but a bit advanced for a 3 year old to grasp. Overall, the author wrote a beautiful creative story, but I would have liked to see more pictures in the book. My daughter loved the cover of this book so after purchasing this one, I tried to search another unicorn book with some illustrations inside and found that this one was excellent for my daughter: Sparkle the Brave Unicorn,
I search it disappointing that readers are willing to accept not good writing (and non-existent editing) in ebooks, free or otherwise. Particularly in children's books, because they're learning from what we place in front of them, right or star for the writing. A second because, based on other reviews, the story may be cute. I don't know, I didn't obtain past the second page.
This book was spectacular for my daughter during our trip to Thailand. It is well-put-together and had lots of content for an 8 year-old. It not only kept her busy during long flights but taught her a lot about Thailand in the process. Heck, it taught us a lot about Thailand, too!
This book was great! Excellent for my 5- and 7-year-olds on our latest trip to Thailand: fun activities, colourful pictures, and just the right level of info for kids that age (helpful, but not overwhelming). Will look for other books in this series whenever we travel in the future!
Thorough, well organized, and cute travel guide. It's written for traveling there, but it also works as a study tutorial if you don't have any travel plans. There are lots of fun small android games and facts to fill out, so I'd recommend buying the actual booklet. But, if you buy the Kindle version, there is a benefit to being able to reuse the resource for school or homeschooling. In that case, a notebook could be used for the children found this really fun to go through and we learned a lot about Thailand!
My sons 2nd grade class is studying Asia this year, so this was a amazing book for him. We’ve been on ‘trips’ to Thailand each afternoon and we’ve both learned more than I imagined. He still has more pages to complete, but took his book to present his teacher and she too was impressed!
We’ve just come back from a amazing couple of weeks in Thailand. A relative bought this for my daughter as part of her Christmas gift, and I must say, it was one of the best things she got! It gave her loads of fun when in Thailand and is also a unbelievable diary of her trip that she’ll be able to look back on when she’s older and bring back fabulous memories. I can’t wait for our next holiday and I will be buying another tutorial myself when the time comes.
An perfect method to teach your kids more about a country and give them things to do during any quieter times. Rather than getting agitated and bored, your children can soak up lots of interesting facts and information. The language section is terrific, as it really allows children to test and engage with locals on a little level and helps them to experience a lot more. The tasks are fun, and prompt children to think more about Thailand, their own country, and probably the wider globe in general
If you are planning a family holiday to Thailand I would strongly recommend buying this book. Informative, fun, colorful, and educational, it will teach your kids lots about the country. Mine enjoyed trying out the various phrases and getting to grips with the foreign money. Highly recommended.
My granddaughter who is in third grade and loves dance classes clutched this book to her chest and squealed when she opened it. I think that meant she loved it. LOL
Cute children book. I bought for one of the neighbor kids. Girls always like to dance!
