Review: Julia and her animal friends are having a camping night under the stars but Julia can’t find her book. Then sailor Bertrande bear shows up and takes them on a night adventure to the night library to get a book.
I personally didn’t really enjoy this or get into the story, I thought it would be a really relaxing adventure but I just didn’t find myself escaping into this world. It was still cute and I liked the friendship between Julia and the animals and the importance of a nice book to help you feel better.
I really liked the illustrations in the book, they were really beautiful and had sweet nighttime relaxing colour tones. I did find some issues with the language in the book as there were some really long, unusual and could be difficult words for children to read.
This wasn’t really a book I would read again personally, but I’m sure others would love reading this and that some children would love the adventure with Julia and her friends.
