Review of picture book "Klutzy Kantor"
Kantor is a young, clumsy, flying horse who keeps crashing into and tripping over things. But one thing he is good at is solving riddles. When he says that he wishes he weren't so clumsy, his friend, Agra – an old flying horse - tells him that the leprechaun, Cobbledom McSweeney, will grant a wish to anyone who defeats him in a battle of wits. Kantor sets off to find the leprechaun who asks him to solve a riddle about four ants. But Kantor has to be careful, because the riddle is not all that it seems. This is an amusing story with delightful illustrations that are sure to keep children entertained. I very much liked the character of Cobbledom McSweeney and was highly entertained when Kantor crashed into him as he sat atop his rainbow, causing them both to slide down the rainbow and land right in Cobbledom's pot of gold! A charming story which illustrates the benefits of developing the talents that each one of us has and also shows that lying doesn't pay in the end.
