Book Review: It's a Book by Lane Smith

✰✰✰✰✰ You can't text, blog, or tweet with it. Nor can you scroll down or use Wi-Fi with it. So just what exactly does a book do? The monkey does his best to explain to the jackass exactly what it is that a book does. But will the tech savvy little jackass with a laptop attached at the hip ever get it? Read the book and find out.

The Bottom Line: It's a Book is sassy and fun. Lane Smith brilliantly contrasts modern technology with timeless media. Smith doesn't need a lot of words to make a point. The adorable illustrations feature a minimalist approach in muted colors. This is a great example of where less is more and sometimes a simple approach is best. Highly recommended for the young and the young at heart as well as all bibliophiles with a sense of humor. Well done!

Details: It's a Book by Lane Smith. Hardcover published by Roaring Book Press in 2010. 32 p. ISBN: 978-1-59643-606-0
