Noah Dreary is a boy who complains. In fact he complained so much that one day his head fell right off his shoulders. There was nothing the doctors could do about it. You might think it would stop him complaining but no. He kept right on complaining till one day something terrible happened. This thing totally changed Noah’s attitude so he became someone amazing instead of someone always complaining.

Disclaimer: I love Aaron Blabey books.

This is a wonderful story on perspective. The theme is a little complex like many of Blabey’s books but that doesn’t mean you should steer away from them, in fact it’s just the opposite. Kids don’t have as much problem with concepts as adults may think. This story remains fun as it is fundamentally about a head that is carried around by it’s body. The illustrations are in Blabey’s uniques style. What’s not to love an enjoyable story with a message if you want to look for it.

Highly Recommended.
