I really wanted to like this story. Honestly, the story is pretty good. It has rhyme, it has a rhythm, and the book follows it well. However, it is overly long. The other thing is the illustrations.

In Ella Has a Plan, Ella is worried about her cousins who are always fighting and being rude when they play. She talks to her Mom about how to make a plan to avoid this. The solution? Play a big prank.

The illustrations are soft, bright and sweet. I think they fit the story really well.

I don't think this is the best solution to the problem, but it is an amazing one. If an older group of young readers picks this book up, I think they will find it amusing. But, this book is for a younger audience. This doesn't seem like it'd be a great message to tell them. There would have to be some type of discussion with kids after because playing pranks on mean people doesn't solve any problem.

Overall, I think this book can be fun if read in the right context.

Two out of five stars.

Thank you to NetGalley
