Who Needs Love? by Elise Primavera –NOT RECOMMENDED

Primavera, Elise and Illustrated by Park, Lauren Who Needs Love? 48 pgs. Robin Corey Books, 2012. $12.74.  (Rating: G)
This is the story of two alligator best friends, Scarlett and Simon. They run into an evil witch, who turn one into a donkey and the other into a singer who can’t find anything. There is the added complication of a tree who wants a silver dollar. Will the two friends ever see each other again.
This was one of the oddest pictures books I have ever read. It was flat of bizarre. This story didn't flow, was kind of cold and off-putting. It really just didn't make sense –not even in a quirky kind of way. The artwork was unappealing as well, watercolor that was washed out and boring.
