The illustrations are bright and interesting, perfect for the targeted audience. The text, however, is confusing and sophisticated, and I was too unsettled to enjoy this book. Comparing a puffin to a newspaper or a snake or shovel, just doesn't seem to serve the right purpose for little ones. Puffins are unusual birds. Comparing puffins to other birds, might help drawn the same distinctions with a difference without drawing too many far-fetched conclusions.
