This is a great book for anyone who loves a cute, sweet story. My family and I read every night as part of a bedtime routine. This book fit right in. My 7 year old son loved the book, he saw the problem with the friendship and really wanted to keep reading each night to find out what happens next.

Feeding Malachi by Abbie Hilton is a really good kids book, IMO. Granted I don’t have kids, but I am goin to gift it to my sister so she can read it to my nephew. It’s a good story that brings up some important adult ideas (that animals eat each other), that can get a child thinking. The illustrations are beautiful as well.
