REVIEW of LIBBY THE LOBIVIA JAJOIANA ISBN 979 - 1 - 987976 - 74 - 8
by Regan W. H. Macaulay & Kevin Risk Illustrated by Gordon Bagshaw Mirror World Publishing
...Lobivia Jajoiana — your LIBBY is an eye-pleasing and delightful treasure! Gordon’s talent is obvious to this publisher’s eye – the detailing clearly emphasizes the drama and message of the story. I especially enjoyed the night scenes.
Books for children are first a visual input, catching the eye and captivating the curiosity of the listener/reader to learn more. Writers/storytellers of books for children must submit “my” story to the dreadful, ego-deflating reality of compliance with the publisher’s rule of thumb: “cut your words to a minimum and let the illustrations tell your story.”
LIBBY is alive with stimulating, impact-filled images complementing selected, descriptive text — a skillful combination of talents bringing the clear message that differences don’t define; but rather, enhance the richness of individuality
I know LIBBY THE LOBIVIA JAJOIANA will serve as a “support bloom” for many children who yearn to be recognized as special, beautiful friends.
