Epic: Welcome to Moonhaven by Annie Auerbach - OPTIONAL

Auerbach, Annie  Epic: Welcome to Moonhaven  HarperFestival, 2013.  $3.99  PICTURE BOOK  Content: G.  

This book introduces the reader to characters from the movie Epic.  Mary Katherine is a human who finds tiny forest creatures living in her yard.  She is magically shrunk down and finds herself involved in saving the forest from the evil Boggen.  She meets many new friends and learns from her father that just because you can’t see something doesn’t mean it’s not there.  

The illustrations in this book are picture frames from the movie.  The storyline is based on the characters, but still does a good job of summarizing the conflict from the movie.  This is similar to other Epic picture books so if you already have one this isn’t anything new.  I think that if you have kids that liked the movie they will like this book.  

EL (K-3)-OPTIONAL.  Reviewer, C. Peterson.
