A short and sweet story about sharing and friendship. I thought the illustrations were so fun and the writing succinct and effective. I really smiled at the last page because it was so delightful.
An original, funny, and beautifully illustrated picture book by the team of author/storyteller Jose Carlos Andres and artist/illustrator Myriam Cameros Sierra, “Who Stole My Leg?” is especially and unreservedly recommended for family, daycare center, preschool, elementary school and community library picture book collections and personal reading lists for children ages 4-8.
Bright-colored illustrations reminiscent of children’s cartoons reflect the humor and charm of this story (available in both English and Spanish) about a pirate captain with a wandering peg leg
This engaging, uniquely funny story provides children with a creative outlet for their fears.
This book would make for an especially fun read aloud choice, that will keep kids guessing about its resolution right up until the end.
