We received this book to give an honest review.
Zealy and Whubba are the best of friends. One day they decide to swim and catch fish. Whatever they catch they will have a picnic! How fun would that be. Zealy isn't very good at catching fish but hey you never give up. With the help of Whubba showing her the ropes Zealy ends up fishing and they get so many fish. The best way to end the day is to share what you caught.
Overall this is a cute book, not a lot of illustrations but that is okay if your child is okay with that.
Award winning author, Roe De Pinto studied children's lit for 3 years during which time she developed her characters, Zealy and Whubba. Due to her time being consumed by her motherly duties, family business and realty development, she shelved her ideas of a children's book series, hoping to pick them up again as a retirement project and someday establishing a legacy for her children and grandchildren. Zealy and Whubba became a dream fulfilled after her self-publishing efforts released the first in the series on September 24, 2015. As a "Nana" of three, it was truly a gift to be able to publish a children's series if for nothing else, her beautiful grandchildren to enjoy. She is working diligently to complete the series and expects at least two more of the books to be in print by June 2016, and someday her ultimate dream is to have Zealy and Whubba animated for children around the world to all enjoy. Her passion for these characters is visible in the colorful illustrations and portrayal of love of family and friends through the portal of a very young reader's book. These books are targeted at inspiring love of family and friends, even the most unlikely character pairing, and touching base on safety and environment through marine animals. Let Zealy and Whubba melt your heart and teach your little ones the meaning and value of the importance of loving one another, family morals, as well as survival in an ever-changing world that we all live with today.
