The Story Shell: A Tale of Friendship Bog (Friendship Bog Series)

Gloria Repp

Price: FREE

Finally a concept in a children’s book that I have not seen done a thousand times before. My kids adored this book and I will definitely be looking for more books from this author. This book begins with a cast of adorable characters preparing for a party and then things go awry when the story shell disappears. I loved that the author stayed consistent with her story throughout the book, keeping it interesting and entertaining. This is one of the best children’s books I have seen this year. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for a great gift or bedtime story. This book has adorable illustrations as well.

CARING AND NURTURING

The lion is the emblem of Venice, but the common cat rules its narrow streets and alleyways. A prince among these feline rulers is Piccolo, and what a fine life he leads! Especially after dark-when the streets are full of possibilities!

Then one night, Piccolo makes a discovery that threatens his carefree life and his independence and starts him on a new and special kind of adventure.

In these pages, you will also meet Caesar-Piccolo’s older and somewhat cynical friend, and Sophia-the shoe shop cat, to whom Piccolo turns for advice when his life takes its unexpected turn. And you will meet two irresistible kittens-one spotted and one striped-who need a home and who help Piccolo discover his own tender heart.

Author Carol Talley, who first visited Venice vicariously in 1977, returned to that city-which many call the most beautiful in the world-to capture its watery magic in breathtaking prose.

Illustrator Itoko Maeno’s enchanting renderings of the canals, markets, crooked byways, boats, and bridges of Venice and her wise and witty portraits of its two- and four-legged citizens will delight children and adults alike.

At a time when we are recognizing the need for boys as well as girls to develop nurturing skills, Piccolo appears as a welcome model for all children.

Piccolo leads a life full of adventure and possibilities. And then two homeless kittens decide to adopt the free-spirited Piccolo. “I’m not a Papa cat,” objects Piccolo. “I’m a tomcat.” Children will delight in seeing how the kittens help Piccolo discover his own tender heart and a new kind of adventure.

A SURPRISE and added bonus is the “Enrichment Information” which includes lots of facts about daily life in Venice. There are colorful thumbnail sketches of Venice, Marco Polo, Italian words and phrases, Canals of Venice, Bridges of Venice, Flags of Venice, Regattas and Gondolas and Gondoliers! This is fascinating detail that did not make it into the story itself, but is very rich in interesting description.

A second big plus is the “Letter to Parents and Educators” which includes many relevant questions and comments to facilitate conversation with young readers about the message of the story…that “Papas” as well as “Mamas,” can be the most nurturing and caring parents! So even though on the surface, this is just an engaging story for children, it is also truly helpful in a real way.
