The illustrations are simplistic and appealing and the simple words are fun and hilarious. It’s told in a graphic novel style, each blade speaking and thinking in bubbles. This book, and series is sure to draw in all early readers- including reluctant readers. Kids will relish in the personalities of each blade of grass which deepen upon every reading.
