This is a fun and entertaining book. Young readers will enjoy this story of Salty. The illustrations in this book are bright and colorful as well as really bring this story to life. I really felt for Salty and was not sure how he would find his way out of his predicament. Luckily, he found a friend in Pep. She was sweet. I love that she was portrayed of Ethic descendent. I know that my niece will really enjoy this book.
