The Adventures of Popcorn and Jellybean by Robert Gillespie is an adorable fantasy story where young readers are introduced to two friends, Popcorn and Jellybean. It is a Saturday afternoon and they both decide to go on an adventure. Their adventure introduces them to many new animals they meet along the way, which are far more than just bunnies, squirrels, and birds. The adventure is a learning experience for both of them as each day brings new challenges and their adventurous trip will teach readers how to make decisions in situations that are not planned.
The story is whimsical and children will love reading about the adventure and the challenges faced by Popcorn and Jellybean on their trip. The author’s concept is educational and informative and he puts it across in a fun and interactive manner to readers, making it interesting. The illustrations are charming and they breathe life into the story and give the characters personality. The book is good for bedtime story-telling and can be used for interactive sessions in classrooms and school libraries. I like the way the story encourages children to become adventurous and plan in advance for their trips. Children will look forward to Popcorn and Jellybean's antics as the story progresses, and it is a story that will make children more imaginative and creative in their thinking.
