We don’t normally review children’s books. I am making an exception for Julia’s House for Lost Creatures by Ben Hatke. (“Are rules really rules if they’re never broken?” – Aristotle, probably)
A couple of years ago, I needed to buy a present for my niece. As a book blogging person who wishes people read more so that they’d talk to me about books, I wanted that present to be a book. I didn’t (and still don’t) really know anything about kids books. Fortunately, around that time, I happened to read through a few Goodreads reviews written by the fantasy author Patrick Rothfuss. He gave a children’s book a glowing review. That book was Julia’s House for Lost Creatures. I bought it for my niece.
She loved it.
