The text doesn’t always make sense. There’s a picture of a rabbit coming out of a hat, and the text says, “Rabbit with prunes?” I have no clue what that means. The text next to a paint can reads, “Is this soup? Red soup is a fact of life.” Next to a blue airplane, the text says, “Can you fly through a faucet? These days almost all mail travels by cloud.” A blue swan has the text, “These swans don’t sirens or flashing blue lights.” That’s not even a sentence! And there is nothing else on the page that I can see that does have sirens and flashing blue lights. So what are they comparing it to?
I’m not really sure who this book is for. It doesn’t seem to be for children, because a lot of the pop references to the Beatles or National Geographic Magazine would be over their heads. But it’s not for teens or adults either, because the drawings and organization is too juvenile. There were a lot of pop references that I didn’t even recognize, and popular sayings or idioms that I didn’t know.
