Weebeasts Review from Glee Books in Australia
If you haven’t discovered the Weebeasts, a wonderful imaginative world awaits you. Peaceable and compassionate little creatures not too remote from humans, the Weebeasts are constantly evolving throughout their history, which has parallels with ours. Intrepid explorers, they’ve an eco-friendly philosophy, have developed a highly sophisticated technology and unlike (some) humans, they learn from experience, so harmful incidents are not repeated. So far Micah Linton has unearthed enough detail in his field studies to suggest that mythology is populated by Weebeasts—he is producing three volumes of Weebeast culture, with more to follow. Rendered in pencil and watercolour, the world of these irresistible wee beings is brought to life in textless books for readers of any age. Ingenious! Those who enjoy the endearing, unthreatening Moomins should find Weebeasts equally charming. (We look forward to the promised Weebeast soft toys adorned with souvenirs of their travels.)
