The Best Book in the World, by Rilla (Rilla Alexander)

Whatever the "best book in the world" is, it's not this. This book is okay, it's nice, it's fine, but it's not superlative.

Like many of the Flying Eye books I've encountered it seems to have been created by someone who loves art more than they love children. I"m not saying it's a bad book or inappropriate in any way, I just think the main (and nearly the only) focus of the book is on the artwork, and the words and story are of little consequence. 

If you love the artwork, you'll love the book. But, as with other books from this publisher, I'm not as enamoured of the artwork as the publishers seem to be. Meh.
