The story, The Flyers and The Crawlers is written by P.B. Jeffrey and illustrated by Nicoletta G. Fazio. For full disclosure, P.B. is my wife's cousin and they grew up together like sisters. The story deals with bullying one of the pressing issue facing young people today. This children story deals with the issue in a very positive and endearing way. The Flyers learn a valuable lesson on why being different is not the same thing as being inferior.
The artwork is colorful and relays the story very well. The bugs are very cute and expressive from The Flyers gleeful taunting to The Crawlers sorrowful faces. The art is engaging and will captivate both adults and young children alike.
The story is written in rhyme, which reminds me of Dr. Seuss books like The Cat in The Hat. Only it's a much shorter read. The conciseness of the story is something that parents will appreciate compared to the long reading sessions that are involved with books like Green Eggs and Ham or The Lorax.
It's a fun story and the best endorsement you can get is when a three year old tells you that it's their favorite story. That's even before he knew his auntie wrote. So check it out. You can get your copy here from Amazon.com for the Kindle. Best of all its currently free, like hugs.
