***** Review *****
Bala-Gala is a cool creature! He comes alive and can change from one animal to another.
Bala-Gala lives in a forest, Gamba-Bamaba, and his first objective is to save himself from a crocodile, the mean Brammy-Gommy, at the River Kanga.
Bala Gala – an animal that can transform; he used to be a deer and is now a tiger
When Bala-Gala was a tiger, all his friends stayed away from him. They were scared he would eat them. So he became a dinosaur.
The Highs and Lows
- + The Imagination. There is so much imagination built into this story, which is perfect for young, beginning readers. They will easily identify!
- + Bala-Gala. He is so interesting! He can transform into anything he wants to. He starts off as a deer, then a tiger. After he realizes his friends are afraid of him, he becomes a dinosaur and helps all his friends gather food and travel. How nice is that? Also, I want to be like Bala-Gala. I want to just become a dinosaur!
- Setting. The setting is marvelous! All the animals of the forest come together in this one place and seem to all be friends with one another.
This story is so different than most children’s books I’ve read, and I enjoyed the twist to the ending. It explains why Bala-Gala can change and transform from one animal to another at will.
Recommendation – Buy, Borrow or Skip?
Buy! This is another cute read. It has more text than most beginning readers might be able to read on their own, and it has a great storyline that will inspire youngsters’ imaginations.
