Hopper and Wilson

Hopper and Wilson - Maria van Lieshout This is more about my shortcomings as a reader then about the shortcomings of the book. The plot concerns two stuffed animals and a balloon who start off in a paper boat to find the end of the world. The problem with me? I can't get past that fact that a lot of the reflections of the text from the paper boat are not correct. The text doesn't match, or it doesn't line up with the apparent light source. I spent a lot of time noticing this and being distracted from the story by it. The illustrations are sloppily-colored watercolor, which has its place. That place is not in my heart.The story, while slight, is engaging enough if one isn't a jerk too concerned about reflections to focus on it.
