The Gift of the Quoxxel by Richard Titus
Age Group: Middle Grades
What an imaginatively whimsical book. It was one of those that made no sense but still drew me into the story. It is unlike anything I have ever read.
Most books make sense and have some kind of storyline. This one really didn’t. Now, that is not to say that I didn’t enjoy it. Surprisingly, I did, with every strange and wonderful moment. Most read to get away from the real world. This book will definitely have you doing that. One, because you will be trying to figure out what is going on, and the other because it just transports you to this beautiful and colorful little island of Nibb.
There was nothing bad in it at all, except for the character named Yill. He got on my nerves. He reminded me of a swarm of gnats buzzing around my head and face. I kept wanting to swat Yill away.
I was slightly broadsided by this book. There was a story, but there wasn’t a story. Yet, I still loved it. The power of words is amazing.
It is kind of hard to review a book that you cannot find a story in. At the same time, I didn’t want to put it down either. Any minute it would all come together. In a way it did. ❤
Pick it up and read it. Tell me what you think about it. Thank you, Mr. Titus! Happy reading!
