This is honestly one of the better picture books I've read in a while. I wish it was traditionally published, and not just an e-book.
The illustrations were great. Very detailed and fully of vibrant colors. I loved them all! The colorful reef images were so bright and realistic looking.
The best part of this book is actually the story. It was told in a rhyming format that was not forced or silly. Each of the ryhymes fit perfectly together to tell a great adventure story. It seems that too often I read picture books that have fantastic illustrations, but the story itself is lacking. Well, not this time. It's the full package. If that's not enough, there is even an index in the back to tell you about some of the lesser known sea creatures. I had no idea there was really a Sally Lightfoot crab!
I really enjoyed this one. I think any child that enjoys the ocean or sea creatures would find something to love about Sally Lightfoot's Journey.
