What I Loved:
The imagination in Friday Night Wrestlefest was so fun! A bedtime story that centers around the family, but with a wrestling twist. I just loved the concept and really enjoyed the book!
How I Felt:
The Story is told as if an announcer for a wrestling match is the narrator. I’m not a wrestling fan, but I still really enjoyed the references. The dad is getting the kids ready for bed, but like many bed times the kids resist a bit. For this family, the resistance is in the form of a wrestling match. There are adorable names for the wrestling moves each family member does, such as the Jumpin’ Jellyfish and each person also has a wrestling name, like Peanut Brother and Dangerous Daddoo.
The Writing is done well. There is so much excitement in the words, it makes the reader feel the anticipation and enthusiasm that surrounds this family’s bedtime.
The illustrations were so fun! They were bright and colorful and just made you feel the action that was going on. The text was just as exciting. The use of different fonts and sizes gave the story a life of its own!
Overall, our entire family really enjoyed Friday Night Wrestlefest. The story was really fun and a great twist on a bedtime story. The illustrations were bright and exciting. A great book all around!
