I loved the fresh layout of this book! The perfect hybrid of cartoon style illustrations, graphic details and unusual characters, it’s bound to hold appeal for upper primary children especially. I particularly enjoyed some of the language features included – a great example of onomatopoeia! You can order a copy of Waata the Weta here.
