"While the illustrations tell the story clearly, they are flat-looking and unexceptional. Additionally, the narrative includes some copyediting errors. These issues aside, Pebble is a generally well-told tale. It should draw in readers with its unique viewpoint of a young boy’s daily life."

Synopsis

Pebble is a excellent book for teaching children lessons about kindness and responsibility. It also lets children know that if you make poor decisions there can be some consequences. Pebble and his friend Travis depend on each other in a heartfelt book about their adventures together. While this book may be more appealing to young boys the lessons that Travis and Pebble learn are good lessons for all children. Travis is a going to grow up and be a better person because of his relationship with Pebble and the confidence and concentration Pebble helps Travis attain. While the book is playful and fun it has serious moments allowing for discussion about some of today's issues in our society, especially "bullying". Pebble is the one telling this story which makes Pebble and his feelings more realistic for the reader.
