I really love the drawings. They look like a mix of Carl Larson and Jan Brett. Perfect choice. It made me want to go straight back home for a visit. I think the story sounds fun and interesting too.
My daughter Mikayla (age 11, Pensacola, FL) saw it and wanted to read it. When I told her she could, she picked it up and read it in one sitting. She loved the story and said it was a great book. She also loved the illustrations. She wanted to know if you were going to be doing another book as well.
My son, Jonas, loves the story! Plus it helps him learn his English. I like the women -- very strong.
Dalarna Horse is an excellent, well-written book. As a grandmother and as a former reading teacher, I was SO impressed with it. My grandchildren loved it. It's an interesting story that captures one's attention immediately. I liked the use of colored ink to show dialogue as it makes it easy for readers to identify each speaker. I also loved the "Cutting Room Floor." I'm looking forward to the author's next book!
Too cute! Minnesota Swedes are going to love it. Is there going to be a sequal?
I store my outdoor gear in my daughter's old bedroom and while looking for something in there this morn I noticed a Dalarna horse sitting on her book shelf. Looked a lot like a unicorn. Thank Dylan (the author) for me. I'll never look at that rocking Dalarna horse quite the same again.
Back to the book!
