The Bramble


Cameron desperately wants to play tag with the older boys, who laugh at him for not being able to touch any of them, but when he tumbles into a bramble Cameron finds himself in another world where his talents are appreciated.








Think of The Bramble as a anti-bullying book that meets Where the Wild Things Are. Cameron wants to play with the older kids, but they won't let him. They pick on him because of his size. What little kid can't relate to that, huh?

But then something amazing happens. Cameron follows this interesting creature (a la Alice and the White Rabbit) through a bramble to discover that he's pretty amazing. When he does venture back to his world, he's ready to play with the big kids.

I really liked that this book had hardly any words. The pictures told the story, which is perfect for smaller readers. I love the idea of kids reading along and adding their own dialogue and commentary to the story. The plot ideas are endless.

Cute looking book-I don't really read picture books but I do like the sound of this story.
