Review of a witch

Mubu the Morph is a young children’s rhyming book about self discovery. It follows Mubu as he morphs into a fish, bird, bike and a dog, and yet doesn’t seem to feel happy. He then realises that he is Mubu the Morph and not Sam, and that he is suppose to Morph – or this is the message that I picked up on, as I wasn’t sure whether he was happy or sad to be a Morph.

I do understand fully what the author has tried to do with this book, however I feel that he has not delivered what he set out to do as the book is quite confusing. Children, and some adults, just won’t understand it!

I read the book a few times before I understood what it was about. I then asked my 10 and 13 year old sons to read it. Once they had, I asked them to explain what the book meant – their response, it’s about a Morph Morphing and doing what he is made to do, they couldn’t get any other message from it.

The rhyming text flowed naturally and worked well alongside the beautifully drawn illustrations. Mubu is a fun character, one that I feel kids will connect to and love, unfortunately they will just need an adult to explain the book to them.

I’m really sorry but I can only award this book three stars.
