Review: Do you like fantasy books with awesome characters? What about books with pages full of detailed pictures? If you do, then The Whisper by Pamela Zagarenski is the right book for you.
The Whisperis about a little girl who finds a special looking book in her classroom at school. After taking the book home, the girl, sadly, finds that there are no words in the book. Then, the girl hears a whisper in her ear. The whisper tells her to create her own stories using the pictures. As she turns each page, she makes a new story.
The Whisper is a book primarily intended for young children who can read or as a read aloud book. The Whisper has pictures on every page and has a more difficult vocabulary for young ones just learning to read. The Whisper is full of imagination and has very colorful and detailed pictures. The pictures are very fantasy like. I believe the moral of the story is even though you donÕt know what to do, you can rely on your imagination. I enjoyed reading The Whisper, and I think you will too.
