In this beautifully illustrated and mostly wordless book, Cameron isn't small, but he's not exactly big. He's not slow, but he's also not quick. He wants friends, but it never quite seems to work out. And in a game of tag, he's going to end up "it." Or at least that's how things are on this side of the Bramble. On the other side, it's a different story. On the other side of the Bramble, something extraordinary can happen, something that changes everything.

Think of The Bramble as a anti-bullying book that meets Where the Wild Things Are. Cameron wants to play with the older kids, but they won't let him. They pick on him because of his size. What little kid can't relate to that, huh?


But then something amazing happens. Cameron follows this interesting creature (a la Alice and the White Rabbit) through a bramble to discover that he's pretty amazing. When he does venture back to his world, he's ready to play with the big kids.


I really liked that this book had hardly any words. The pictures told the story, which is perfect for smaller readers. I love the idea of kids reading along and adding their own dialogue and commentary to the story. The plot ideas are endless.
