"A Powerful and fascinating foray into the future of science and its unforeseen consequences"
Arnold is a moose who lives in a small wooden house on the edge of the forest. He is something of a dreamer, and his greatest wish is to find some buried treasure. But despite his best efforts, Arnold has never found any so far. Then, one day, Arnold’s friend, a goose called Louis, comes to his house with a suggestion that they go searching for treasure. Arnold jumps at the chance, of course, and the two make preparations to set off into the dangerous forest. They enlist the help of some others and head off on the adventure of a lifetime. But there are more dangers than even they could have imagined, and they soon realize the value of friendship. What will happen when they find the treasure they are looking for? Will it change them, or will they still be the same moose and goose they always were?
A riot of fun and a lesson to be learnt the delightful Arnold and Louis. Gold rush proves a wonder-filled debut for Storm who pulls out all the stops to deliver a corker of a story. Illustrated by Storm whose deceptively simple-looking drawings and vibrant colour pallet perfectly complement his words they always manage to be both magical and intriguing with Storm creating two immensely endearing characters who are sure to spark the imaginations of his young readers. With its cleverly nuanced plot and occasionally rhyming text, Arnold and Louis embark on an adventure that not only entertains but enlightens too as Storm’s wonderful story immerses them in every scene. Stories like these are sadly only too rare but with a valuable life lesson in honesty and kindness, it joins the ranks of the classic children's picture books to leave its readers looking at the world through the hopeful eyes of a child.
A compelling adventure that makes the perfect bedtime companion Arnold and Louis - Gold rush, introduces a vibrant new voice to its genre and is highly recommended.
