The Boggle Eyed Gog – A Fun Spin on The Typical Children’s Book
The book is about a monster called the ‘Boggle Eyed Gog’ a slovenly, lazy, child eating miscreant who forms a plot to capture some children to eat for dinner by pretending to be friendly. Unfortunately for him, in a beautiful twist of plot – the children who he plans to eat actually end up eating him. (Don’t worry the language, illustration and concept are all child-friendly and appropriate). It actually is a fun story that can give children a more humorous concept of monsters – which I really liked.
I will say -that my daughter at two has a more advanced vocabulary than most 3 and 4 year olds I know. That’s not me bragging up my kid – that’s just fact. She’s insanely intelligent. She loved this book. She understood the concept. Now I would say for others – this is a book best suited for the 4 and up zone – just because the language is a bit more eloquent than your typical children’s book-which is one of the best things about it. This is a book that kids will love that the parents will laugh along with as they read it as well.
Also, we really loved the illustrations in this book. They were very creative, colorful and vivid. They really were a great match for the book. The monster really matched his description and while ‘monsterish’ was not scary enough to evoke fear in children.
Overall, we were quite satisfied with the book. The language, concept and illustrations were a great package. It is a book the whole family can enjoy and is bound to become a family favorite in your home as it now is in mine.
