Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!

Hector Fox and the Giant Quest by Astrid Sheckels

Title: Hector Fox and the Giant QuestHector Fox and the Giant

Author and Illustrator: Astrid Sheckels

Publisher: Dover Publications

Published: November 6th, 2014

Rating:   5/5

This has to be one of the most endearingly illustrated books I’ve seen, The story concerns a group of five animal friends – Charlie Chipmunk, Hector Fox, Jeremiah Rabbit, Lucy Skunk, Mo Marten – all of them illustrated as humanoid characters, dressed in Edwardian style clothing. After hearing a fairy story about a giant, Lucy wishes the stories were true so the gang set off on an adventure to find a real fairy-tale giant. They have adventures along the way and meet other friends. The illustrations are really superb in supporting the text and enhancing the story. This is a fantastic book that children will re-read and look through again and again, a classic in the making!
