#BookReview: Rock, Scissors, Paperbag by @elizbethgodley

Synopsis: Rock, Scissors, and Paperbag are the bestest of friends! Paperbag is afraid of everything, Rock is a talented musician, and Scissors is an excellent Orange Ball player. After the school bullies, The Bucket Kids, steal Scissors’ fake orange-ball, the kids decide to get back at the bullies. What if they could get a real orange-ball from The Great Orange Tree? That would show The Bucket Kids! 

Recalling the local legend, they embark on a fantastic adventure to find The Great Orange Tree. However, while solving the riddle within the ancient map, they encounter a cave monster, a tornado of rapping cooties, and the horrid Land of Smells. How will they face each challenge? Will they end up back home with a real orange-ball? And if they do, will they share it? 

Throughout their adventure, Rock gains confidence, Paperbag conquers his fears, and Scissors makes peace with being imperfect. Best Buds! 

Winner of the 2023 International Firebird Book Award, Rock, Scissors, Paperbag is a spellbinding tale of friendship, fantasy, and adventure. A perfect book to be shared and treasured.


Rating: 5 Stars
My Review: This book was a cute story about finding things to do around your town.  You might think your town is boring but you never know what you could find.  I fell in love with the kids of Orange Orange and Orange Ball sounds like a fun time.  And I can not wait to actually what Splashy the pup bunny creature looks like.  Because who can say no to a cute little creature.  I think this book will appeal to children that are reluctant readers as they can go on an adventure with funny and interesting beings of Rock, Scissors, and Paperbag.
