Catch My Breath

We rated this book:


Disney is putting out children’s books illustrated by their animators, and it just further proves that Disney has the best illustrators around. This short and sweet story is by Paul Briggs, who worked on Frozen. The story is fairly easy to follow, especially for young kids. We follow a young boy, not given a name, who likes to run fast, or rather, as he says, “very fast.” His mother tells him to slow down and to catch his breath, and what follows is a lyrical and well-drawn story of what it would be like to actually catch one’s breath. We follow the young boy as he looks in all the places his breath could be, by his grandpa, in his dog, or in the forest where he eventually starts to run after it. When all hope seems lost, when he is unable to catch his breath underwater or buy a new breath in the newborn ward of a hospital, he finds it and catches it. I am not exactly a fan of the ending; it feels a bit too enigmatic for a kids’ book. But the art is done really well and brings to life the little boy and the breath he is chasing.
