Reviews

Reviewed By Rosie Malezer for Readers' FavoriteDesmond and His Mighty Adventures is a children's book written in rhyme by R.C. Wittig (formerly published as Rebecca C. Guerrero) and illustrated by Andrew Miller. Three-year-old Desmond celebrates his birthday with his parents, but is disheartened to receive a soft teddy bear as a birthday gift, as it is not tough enough. As Desmond goes to his bedroom to sulk, Teddy jumps up, filled with excitement, and runs past him. When Desmond gives chase, both he and Teddy are greeted by an amazing forest where Desmond's bedroom used to be. Surrounded by forest animals, Desmond's feeling of toughness reaches its peak when a lion appears and roars loudly. Desmond throws a ball to the lion, quickly transforming its demeanor into that of a playful kitten. Sneaking down the hall to the bathroom, Desmond and Teddy see a pirate ship where the bathtub had once been. Aboard the ship, they find beautiful treasures and gold. When angry pirates confront them both, Desmond and Teddy team up and capture the pirates in their own nets. Running down the hallway, they enter the basement and find a dragon sleeping where Desmond's bike is usually parked. They escape the sleeping dragon and meet Desmond's parents back in the kitchen, where his birthday cake awaits. Desmond decides that his teddy bear is the best present he could have ever possibly received.

R.C. Wittig's wonderful story of a child who uses his imagination to play the most fun games inside his home was an absolute delight to read. With each scenario imagined, Desmond feels more and more tough, but also learns that there are times when you should retreat rather than fight. A young child's imagination is a gift which should be nurtured and encouraged. As a child, I recall the numerous games played outdoors while using my imagination, yet today's generation spend too much time at the television, computer, or playing games on their digital devices. Teaching a child at a very young age how to use their imagination is priceless. I very much enjoyed Desmond and His Mighty Adventures and feel this book would be ideally stocked in libraries, day care centers, and in home libraries to be read to children at bed time. The illustrations are bright, colorful, and complement the story beautifully.
