Book Review: Kurious

Kurious by Elizabeth Lumley-Smith
Review by Chris Myers (St Pauls)

Kurios is an illustrated children’s story by a local author that whisks you away to a quaint, magical adventure made all the more brilliant by the illustrations. Kurios – a strange catlike creature – wakes up in a shrunken forest (well, it is actually him that has become giant.) He comes across another peculiar creature, much smaller in size. Together they try to find a way for Kurious to get back home. The book reads well and is great for younger children.
