Walk on the Wild Side (Life in the Wild) - Nicholas Oldland, Nicholas Oldland
A cute book full of excitement for the little ones! I think it will be fun for adults to read it to children as well, because the humour in it is something both age groups can appreciate. I know I did at least, I giggled out loud several times.

I love picture books, yet this illustration style is not really my thing (simplistic, looks like you can make it yourself with Paint), However, I don’t think young children will have a problem with it at all. It’s quite colourful and the characters are well defined. They have faces which remind me of my bulldog; no matter what he’s doing, his face always makes me laugh.

The text is printed in a font that reminds me of Comic Sans, which makes it look less professional than it could look. In all honesty, I gasped a little when I saw the price of this book. I wouldn’t pay 17 dollars for the version I just read.

All criticism aside, I would still recommend this book to people with very young children or as a classroom read. Stories about friendship between animals were always my favourite when I was little. I also love the setting. I saw this book is part of a series called ‘Life in the Wild’; using anthropomorphism for animals in the wild is something I always find delightfully awesome!
