Whoops by Suzi Moore –NO

Moore, Suzi Whoops Templar(Candlewick) 2015. $16.99 PICTURE BOOK
A Dog, Cat, and a Mouse can’t speak. Owl suggests they seek a witch for a spell to cure them. The witch gives it try after try, but things don’t always go so great.
I loved the cover and was eager to read it, but his book wasn’t my favorite read, both in story and illustrations. The illustrations are minimalist and despite some bright pages, it has an empty cold feeling to me. One of my favorite books has a spell that constantly goes wrong, but this one was sort of pointless and odd.
