Book Review of :  Cristobal Bull


Cristobal Bull is an endearing tale, written by Chris Corbett and brought to life with lively illustrations by Richardo Galvao. Corbett narrates the tale in rhyme. The poetry, coupled with the playful full-color illustrations, presents an ideal opportunity for young readers to explore the world of rhyming words. The book cover immediately grabs your attention because of its cheerful bull and eye-catching colors.

Cristobal Bull was a formidable and striking bull who ruled Texas's rodeos and bull rings with his sheer strength and toughness. Despite being widely admired and proud, he also hid a deep sadness within. Something crucial was absent from his life, leaving him in a state of constant boredom.

Because he felt something was missing, Cristobal began to wander from Texas to Mexico and beyond. He made friends with Little Bear, Big Bear, and Sirius, a dog. But he was still bored. Soon he fell into a deep sleep and woke up to see a full moon in the dark sky. His friends answered his questions about the ball of light, calling her the Princess of the Night, Lucille Luna. The story then follows Christobal's quest to follow Lucille Luna. The tale ends with a surprising and satisfying conclusion.

This charming book is appropriate for middle school readers learning to understand poetry's magic. Younger children will delight in the illustrations that give the reader/teacher an opportunity for discussions. The final page with the constellations is an excellent introduction to astronomy and the stars.

This is an ideal illustration of how we aspire our children to grasp their potential and how it can transform their future. It's a powerful tool for teaching them to take initiative and leverage their skills to conquer their fears. This narrative beautifully intertwines with valuable life lessons.

Readers of children's books may look forward to more delightfully illustrated books of poetry by Chris Corbett.
