Picture Book Review: The Three Things

The Three Things
The Three Things by Annie Ruygt

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is such a cute little children’s book! Three friends, (Something, Everything, and Nothing) are all determined to prove that their own way of creating a world is the best way. But their creations don’t turn out quite the way they had hoped, and they realize that it’s only when they work together and appreciate their differences that the world will be balanced and beautiful.

The artwork is whimsical and delightful! It really draws your eye and brings a bright feeling to the story. Such lovely lines and colors! I especially liked how the background is made of book pages with some kind of watercolor over it. (I guess it’s watercolor? I know nothing about art, except that it looks pretty and I like it.) It looks so cool! Everything is sort of hazy and swirly, like the magic of creation pushing into being.

My only problems with this book were several spelling errors, and some grammar problems (using “who’s” instead of “whose”), and the fact that sometimes the character’s names were capitalized and sometimes they weren’t. If you’re going to personify a “Thing”, make sure their name is capitalized!

Other than that, it’s a sweet and funny book about friends learning to get along and appreciate their differences. It takes all kinds to make a world!
