Last Summer at http://whisperingwally.blogspot.com/ I reviewed a book for kids about Whispering Wally, the whale who only speaks in a tiny, soft voice. Now Kevin Collier, who is both the author and illustrator, has released a new book, The Sand Art Secret.
Like the first one in the series, this book is charming. I loved the colorful ocean and cute depictions of the creatures that live in it.
The simple story is appropriate for little kids and the lesson it teaches is something that may influence their lives. Since, like his character, Torrie the tiny sea turtle, Collier is an illustrator himself, perhaps he had to learn that same lesson at some time.
Besides being available in hard copy, this book is also available on Kindle for those who have newer models that can show colors at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AFLFFHM
