What I loved: The story is quite unique, and the illustrations are full of color and interesting details. There is a lot to look at on every page that makes it really interesting. The theme of finding your happiness is one that we can all understand.
What left me wanting more: The woman being stuck inside her kiosk seems a little odd and it is making her sad - unclear if the reader is supposed to find this humorous. I am not sure how I felt by the way her tides turn and dangerous things happen to her in the kiosk. It ended up feeling sadder than anticipated, and I am not sure if she really did find happiness at the end (or if she even wanted to work and life in a kiosk).
Final verdict: Overall, THE KIOSK is a bit of an odd picture book read that describes an unexpected journey to finding a better place.
