Normally I wouldn't be wowed by a book like this. For starters, it isn't my style of illustration at all - cutesy and cartoony . But I really love books that juxtapose magic and the modern world. Countless stories of magic are set in history or in far away (i.e. unreachable) realms. Here we have a fairy family literally living right off the expressway. There is just something funny and endearing about that. I also love that the parents are a little unconventional - dad has a pony tail and mom has a tat on her arm. This probably is more relatable for a lot of kids than your standard picture book mom and dad. All in all, a fun one to check out just for its uniqueness.
