All Good Books Should Take You Somewhere – A Review of RA Anderson’s Puffin Trilogy

The narrative is told through inventive and engaging rhymes, while also staying true to the landscape of Iceland. RA includes many Icelandic words with pronunciation and translation so readers are actually immersed and learning a bit of the language as they go…

Finally, there are the pictures. Wow! As someone who leaves her basic DSLR camera on “auto,” I cannot even pretend to say anything specific about Anderson’s pictures, other than that I keep flipping through the books just to look at them.

Reviewing “Puffins Take Flight: Iceland: The Puffin Explorers Series Book I”

The book is beautifully attractively illustrated, bright colors, a great ‘story’ of two pufflins (young ones, aka chicks), coupled with a slew of fun ‘facts’. It’s a great combination that keeps the reader intrigued, wanting to continue the story but also wanting to understand why the story is the way it is (based on actual knowledge about puffins) at each step of the way.
