I’m very particular about children’s literature, and I love the classics. Many modern books try to reach a moral about the current plight of humanity and the environment, but often the awkwardness of text and weird characters interfere. That’s the case with Weebeasts: Plight by Micah Linton.
This is the second book in the Weebeasts series, and maybe I am missing something by not reading the first. “The Weebeasts are a species that lose their home because they are not kind to their neighbors. They go through a series of obstacles and learn new things, and eventually the find a new home where they are kind to their neighbors.”
In the search for a new home, they find places that are too wet or too dry somewhat emphasizing the scarcity of truly livable land left on Earth. Unfortunately, the idea of the Weebeasts leaving their home because they are unkind does not come across strongly, other than an illustration of them netting some neighbors. There is a slight message of tolerance when they find their new home, but it’s all a little befuddled.
This book is part of the Tree Neutral program that “offsets the number of trees consumed in printing this book by taking proactive steps such as planting trees in direct proportion to the number of trees used.
This book is printed in China and has a strange poofy cover.
