What a delightful children's picture book! Zenji is a Buddabug who has caught a Muzzy Bug. Karma, the little voice inside his head, pops out of nowhere and tells Zenji that he needs to believe in a little magic. Zenji begins a magical tour within himself and makes himself feel better. What I loved most about this picture book were the illustrations. I would close the book and read it again just to see all the vibrant colors again. Aisli Madden has a great concept - a more holistic approach to being sick and proves the point that if we believe in our healing powers within ourselves, we heal much faster. Loved it!
I give this book 5 rainbows!
