Mini Book Review: Hicotea
“I … I don’t know. I guess. Sometimes it is easier to stay quiet. People get tired of questions that can’t be answered. ‘Or scared of the answers they find …'” (pg 14).
Hicotea: A Nightlights Story (64 pages) by Lorena Alvarez is an excellent story for all ages! It made me think, and it promotes curiosity and the smallest bit of environmental awareness. The illustrations are bursting with color and cuteness. There is a slight edge of creepiness or, at least, some parts make you feel uncomfortable (like something’s not right). That’s a hard feeling to capture in artwork/stories.
Anyway, I recommend.
I don't usually post my book reviews here, but, since I haven't made a blog post in a while, I thought why not.
