Children's books can sometimes be touching and emotional in a way that adult books are not and even though I'm an adult reader, I find that I still do enjoy children's books on occasion because of that connection. I did not find that with SOME DAYS. I'm not sure if the translation was poor, or if this was just a not-so-great book, but it read as being very rushed and kind of nonsensical, and I'm not sure what the point was. I kept thinking of Sang Miao's THE IMMORTAL JELLYFISH, which is a much better magic-realism tale about grief and fantasy.
I can't really recommend this one. I thought about giving it a two but the illustrations weren't all that great either and there wasn't really anything about it I enjoyed.
