There is a Tribe of Kids

I am annoyed that this book won the medal and these are the reasons. Firstly I don't understand the book because all i see is a kid who i can't decide if it is a boy or girl jumping around with a bunch of animals and then all of them getting really angry at him/her for no apparent reason other then having fun and being a crazy with the other animals. Secondly there is nothing special about this book as it is not detailed like Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone, it is not original like The Journey and The Wild Animals of the North or warm and fuzzy like The Wolves of Currumpaw. Finally I do not understand why Lane Smith has written there was a tribe of kids, there was a pod of whales ect and I don't know if that is just me a complete idiot or nobody gets because i really hope it's the second one. This book is 100% for kids and this book is 100% not worthy of winning the Kate Greenaway Medal 2017. This book is a 2/10 and I'm feeling generous.
