Rezension zu "Lint Boy" von Aileen Leijten

Cute and thought-provoking
misspidervor einem Jahr

This was a very unusual comic-like story. The illustrations are awesome, very expressive and cute and unique. I loved the dangerous adventure of lint boy and his cuddly brother lint bear. The fact that the monster in this story is human and not some fable creature provided a dark undertone. Despite the fantasy quality of living dolls and socks, it shows that such mean creatures really exist in our world.

Children may not yet draw that line from fiction to reality, and after finishing the book my son immediately asked why the old woman was so mean and what made her so. Unfortunately, the book does not offer much explanation in that regard, and even the ending was only an escape from that answer. As it is, it leaves room for your own imagination and thoughts, which can be a good thing as well. However, I recommend to read this book together with your child so you are able to discuss it afterwards and help them draw their own conclusions.

A different and thought-provoking variation of the hero vs. monster theme which shows that more can be achieved if you have friends and hold together.

(Thanks to Netgalley, the author, and the publisher for a copy of the book, all opinions are my own)
