Book Review: Herman and Rosie by Gus Gordon - Reviewed by (03 Jul 2013)

Herman and Rosie is an interesting book, sweet and innocent.

The story is about two different animals who went about their daily life's, however their life's took a downturn and things were not looking so bright.

There are some hidden messages in this book about being positive and and lifes up's and down which may go over the head of some of the youngsters. The story is wrapped up in music and that play a major theme throughout the book.

The illustrations are quite unique, almost colorful sketch style drawing. Overall an interesting book which may or may not suit.
