    Jasmine from How Useful It Is

    Read for my toddler’s bedtime. Another cute rhyming story about an Orca’s dream to see the Northern Lights. He went on a quest and met other animals along the way who wanted to join him on his adventure. They had a lot of fun and experience teamwork. Read from kindle unlimited.

    Rory: An Orca's Quest for the Northern Lights is a nice story, told in rhyme, about four rather anthropomorphized northern animals who join together to make a journey to see the northern lights. The animals are adorable, and the aurora borealis are beautifully depicted. The rhymes and metre are surprisingly strong, so this would be a great book to read aloud to kids.

I'm not entirely sold on these four particular creatures teaming up as friends. In reality, the polar bear would probably eat the fox, and the orca might try to grab both of them and pull them into the sea... but since the animals are also wearing clothes and accessories, I guess we're supposed to suspend a bit of disbelief here. Strangely, this story about the north is written by two sisters in Australia. I'm curious as to why this wasn't a story about a whale journeying to see the aurora australis. In any case, I'm sure children will love this cute tale. It has great rhymes, nice (if somewhat unrealistic) characters, and appealing illustrations.

    Such a delightful read. The pictures put a smile on my face. A story about a quest, friendship and chasing a dream. I liked the 'did you know...' part. I even learned something new about polar bears. Such a delightful read. The pictures put a smile on my face. A story about a quest, friendship and chasing a dream. I liked the 'did you know...' part.
