My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book from the author for an honest review.

What a cute book!  Bala-Gala is in several different forms: a deer, a tiger, a dinosaur, and even a dragon. How can that be? Children will enjoy reading about Bala-Gala and his story.

The illustrations in Bala-Gala the Brave and Dangerous are colorful and will keep a child’s attention.  The story is fun and will encourage children to use their imaginations. This would be a great book to read to youngsters.
