Day 54. Nog and the Land of Noses was a book I picked at random, thumbing through the storybook bins at the library. It's set in a fantasy land where everyone's nose has some special function ... except Nog's. Of course, in the end, it turns out that's not quite right. Something about this one left me a bit flat. I think it's because the story seems only there to serve the pictures (which are inventive) and beyond that there seems not much to it (aside from the message that everyone has something special about them). The ending was something I didn't see coming (good surprise) but when I thought about it, it didn't seem to make sense (so, hmmm?). So, there we are.
Master A's verdict: Wriggled to be let down. Not really in engaged in either pictures or words today.
