“Mallory Brown at Super Fun Town” is a brightly and gorgeously illustrated children’s book that can cross the interests of several ages. Tristan Tait brings each page to life. The publisher enhanced these illustrations by choosing the appropriately glossy paper. It is immediately visually appealing.
David Disspain’s story itself uses both a rhyming, Dr. Seuss style that younger children will enjoy – think 3-5 year olds – and a lengthy story that 6-9 year olds might enjoy reading on their own. This length though is a bit of a double edged sword. The word lengthis like that of a first chapter book that a 9 y.o. would pick up but the style is done in a manner that might not feel “big kid” enough. Conversely, it is too long for a 4 y.o. to take in one sitting. That said, the possible downsides are outweighed by the delightful pages. I still highly recommend this wonderfully crafted book to families with children age 3-9.
