Matt’s Swirly World: Children’s Book by Madeleine Matthews is a book to be shared by parents with their children. It is also a book for parents to help them traverse the pitfalls of tempers and tantrums. The book is beautifully illustrated and Madeleine has a good concept in theory. Unfortunately the story is a little to much for younger kids to take in. I read this to my friends little boy, and he loved the pictures but the story got lost in translation and he lost interest half way through. We all know that all young kids want is something short sharp and shiny. An adult reading it is one thing but I think it needs revising to hit it’s intended audience.
