Katina Chimney’s Keilah West: The World’s Greatest Klutz is a children’s picture book about a little girl named Keilah who stumbles a bit through the book, trying to find something that she’s good at. Whether cleaning the house or participating in outdoor activities, she just can’t seem to find a steady footing and ends up creating more chaos than a good time for herself. Will Keilah West ever find what she’s good at? You’ll have to open the book to find out.
Keilah West: The World’s Greatest Klutz by Katina Chimney is beautifully illustrated by Robyn Haley. The colors are bright and pop out in spots and are muted in other areas, which I thought really made the characters feel 3D. The emotions are encapsulated flawlessly on the characters' faces, without feeling overly exaggerated. What I loved most about Keilah West: The World’s Greatest Klutz is that it’s a story almost everyone can relate to. Whether they know someone like Keilah who is a bit klutzy at times or whether it’s themselves that are a bit on the klutzy side, we feel the pain that comes from it. And the desire to find something that we can do and be good at is within all of us. We can find the humor in the pages as well as the heart. It seems to be a hard narrative to pull off, having a story that has a bit of both, but Katina Chimney makes it all look so effortless.
