My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is the second Maya & Filippo book I am reading from this delightful series by Alinka Rutkowska. The theme of the book is finding your own happiness and realising that you are in charge of your own feelings. No one owes it to you to make you happy and no one can make you unhappy without some participation from you.
Essentially, this is an important lesson for any child to learn and the author covers this very well using chocolates as a tool. However, she mentions so little about Tauranga. Te old cat man thinks if a child can discover emotions, they should be able to discover more of the island other than who lives on it.
For an illustrated ebook, it is neatly presented and the text is visible at all times unlike some children's ebooks where the text is lost in the cluttered images. From the two books I have read, Maya and Filippo are clearly a good series for children to discover new places and to learn about manners, attitude and treating other people. Highly recommended.
