Genre: Children's 4-6 years
Published: March 8, 2022
Pages: 32

After the mischievous little Fly helped Mula the sleepy tiger to wake up and get energized, they're back to help Svadi, a very snooty monkey, stop worrying about what others think!

Give yoga a try with Mula and the Fly!

Svadi is a very snooty monkey.
But when he hears the jungle beat, Svadi stops worrying about how he looks. He is ready to move his hips and sing the song inside his heart!

Book 2 in the Mula and the Fly series:
Mula and the Fly is a beautifully-illustrated picture book series that promotes mindfulness and provides young readers with a soft introduction to yoga. The fun characters and easy yoga poses promote a happy, healthy lifestyle and encourage young readers to relax and unwind.

I received a copy of this book through Netgalley. This is my honest review. 

This was a short story about a monkey who is a giant jungle bully learning to listen to his heart and just have fun and not care what others think. It seemed to be a bit of a message about bullies being a result of people maybe being bullied themselves. I got the impression that Mula wouldn't let loose because of things others had said about him in the past, which is not cool. 

The illustrations were so colorful, and also very heavily blue, which I love. They were bright and vibrant and very eye-catching. And there were some guided yoga exercises at the end of the book that even I could do. Overall I give this book 3.62 out of 5 stars. - Katie
