The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors - Drew Daywalt, Adam Rex

For more reviews, check out my blog: Craft-Cycle

I normally don't do half stars, but I really am between 2 and 3 stars on this one. 

Overall, this is an interesting read about the fictional origins of Rock, Paper, Scissors. Those origins are basically epic battles between household items. Why are the household items fighting all the time? We will never know. But it's a silly and fun read. 

The book is written with a knight-like mentality, i.e. "I must be the best warrior, but I also want a challenge.", so pretty much fighting for the sake of fighting. Good message for kids? Probably not. But it is entertaining enough if you don't take it too seriously (which you are obviously not meant to do). 

The pictures are interesting, although some of the battle scenes were a little cringe-y. The smooshed apricot and pile of decapitated dinosaur nuggets were a bit much. 

This is a weird, but interesting book. Kind of creepy, kind of fun. I like the idea behind it.
