My rating: 3 of 5 stars
There’s really three things I can use to judge this book: art, story, and characters. Let’s do this.
The art of King Hugo’s Huge Ego is charming. I get the feeling of Disney animation with these drawings and colors, shapes varying and landscapes that are pretty. It’s really pretty book thing.
The story in the book is bland. An aesop about a witch who curses a king, you have all read this before. What is particularly saddening is the quick turn at the end where everybody feels bad, falls in love and lives happily ever after. I would have burned the mother down.
The characters are two dimensional and do not behave like real people. They are dumb. The sorceress does not look like a witch. That was dumb.
This has been five minute reviews. Thank you.
