Book Review – How to be Famous

How to be Famous by Michal Shalev.

Given the title of this book, I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I opened it up. It follows a rather self obsessed pigeon in a zoo who revels in having his photo taken next to all the animals. The story packed with irony of course and a stark warning to pretentious show offs.

The illustrations are quite fun if rather muted in colour but capture the flavour of the story.

There is a place for darker humour in children’s stories, but some parents may be less comfortable with that.

I found it quite funny but Is not for kids? Mmmmm not sure.

All seekers of fame beware!
