Carolina Holland must have taken a lot of time to depict the narration of her book, I Don't Believe In Humans. Kelly lived on Planet Unihorn and had seen almost everything on her planet. However, the existence of humans was a concept she hadn't examined. Furthermore, Kelly didn't believe humans existed. Eventually, she decided to enquire from her friends about human existence. Surprisingly, all her friends believed humans existed. However, their descriptions of humans were distorted and varied from one friend to the other. Finally, Ziggy, Kelly's alien friend, offered to take Kelly on a spaceship to Earth. She eventually saw humans and the differences in their appearance contrary to her friends' descriptions.

Carolina developed many themes in this book, with friendship and adventure being the main ones explored. A reader can finish this book in one sitting since it's a short book. In addition, the images are clear and help cement the author's text. The author develops the character of Kelly throughout the book. The book challenges the reader not to believe a concept without ascertaining its existence. For example, Kelly didn't trust any of her friends until she saw humans up close on Earth.

The author did an excellent job of writing such a straightforward text. Unlike many books, this title directly reflects the author's narration. By posting related questions on the last pages, the author affirms the narration's purpose to the reader.

The only dislike I would point out is the length of the book. However, this doesn't remove the fact that the book was complete. The story was interesting even to adults. I would have loved to continue reading this book or another sequel. What happened after Kelly's curiosity was cured by seeing humans? Since I didn't encounter any errors, I can candidly confirm the book was exceptionally well-edited.

I Don't Believe In Humans deserves a perfect rating of 4 out of 4 stars. The book is void of errors, and the presentation of the text is authentic. Kids from any age bracket would enjoy seeing every page in this book. I would encourage every parent to get their children a copy of I Don't Believe In Humans.

Interesting book. I haven't read a book about aliens in a long time, so this would be a nice book to start with. I can't wait to share it with my younger siblings too.

I am not one to read children books myself unless I am reading it to my children. This is something I will have to keep in mind for the future for my daughter. Great review.

It's like how humans don't believe in unicorns but the situation is reversed here. Unihorn is a great name and I think Unicorn orignally must have been Unihorn. Great review!

This book teaches about forming opinions. There will be different opinions from different people about a particular issue. However, we shouldn't take side until we experience it ourselves. It is a beautiful lesson that will aid our social relationships.
You are yet to be the best version of yourself. Keep refining.

I like that the book will first of all teach kids how important friendship is. It's not only about fun and colourful pictures. Thanks for an honest review.

Great review but looking at the book cover and the transparency of your review I can tell this is a fable. I am not a fan of fables, I don't find them worth my time but your review on the book is perfectly well done.

I am probably not this book's target audience, but I would not mind trying out the book since it seems appealing to me.
