Everyday Kantor Pegasus practices solving riddles. A tricky leprechaun attempts to outsmart him by giving him a next to impossible riddle to solve.To end his clumsy ways he must solve it. Children learn the benefit of practice and to focus on their strengths.
Klutzy Kantor is a funny, witty book about the value of practicing to reach your goals. When Kantor the pegasus tires of flying into trees and bumping into other creatures, Kantor deciedes he doesn’t want to be klutzy anymore. When he learns he must solve a riddle from the cunning, undefeated Cobbledom for his wish to be granted, he begins to prepare. Kantor practices and practices with his friends until he is ready. But when Cobbledom presents the toughest riddle Kantor ever encountered, Kantor begins to get nervous. Will his practice pay off?
Jessica Kennedy captures well Kantor’s emotions as he battles Cobbledom. “Think Kantor, think,” I found myself silently cheering. The adage “Practice makes perfect” applies here. I think children in all areas of life – sports, school, extra curricular activities, and hobbies can learn a lesson from the determined Kantor. To achieve your goals, you must practice.
Jack Foster’s illustrations are the icing on the cake. His artwork is colorful and detail oriented. He captures the characters well in each lively illustration.
The book trailer for Klutzy Kantor includes the original song “Go Me” :
