‘A gorgeous children’s book and definitely quite unique’ Cosmochicklitan reviews Bonkers About Beetroot

Heidi and her able young review team at Cosmochicklitan enjoyed reading Bonkers About Beetroot recently by Cath Jones and illustrated by Chris Jevons:

‘The characters in this book are brilliant. From an overenthusiastic zebra to a grumpy penguin – you name it. The storyline and illustrations are super cute and this book makes for a great bedtime read. 

The book takes a very unexpected plot twist towards the end which greatly adds to the overall impression of it, you will most likely say out loud “I didn’t expect that!” Very refreshing for a children’s book to do something out of the ordinary, which makes it a lot more memorable than many of its contemporaries.’

Thanks!

‘This laugh-out-loud story is packed with fun’ Lancashire Evening Post goes Bonkers About Beetroot!

The Lancashire Evening Post relished our latest picture book Bonkers About Beetroot by Cath Jones and wonderfully illustrated by Chris Jevons:

Starring an optimistic Zebra and a pessimistic Penguin, this laugh-out-loud story is packed with fun, frolics and a fantastic cast of animal characters.

Debut author Cath Jones lets her imagination run wild in this wacky safari adventure brought to life by Chris Jevons’ vibrant illustrations. No child can resist this riot of colour, creative antics and a VERY large beetroot!’

Many thanks, Pam!

‘Got a lot of giggles from my boys’ Library Girl and Book Boy enjoys hamster mayhem!

Library Girl and Book Boy has just posted a wonderful review of Hamster Sitter Wanted by Tracy Gunaratnam and illustrated by Hannah Marks as part of its Pet Pandemonium blog:

This story is heaps of fun and got a lot of giggles from my boys when we were reading it. I think any worn-out parent will be able to sympathise with poor Aunt Fluff and that most young children will learn a trick or two from the cheeky hamsters.

Thank you!

‘I can almost hear children gasping with delight’ The Letterpress Project sinks its teeth into some very tasty beetroot!

Another wonderful review from the lovely Karen at The Letterpress Project! This time for new picture book Bonkers About Beetroot by debut author Cath Jones and brilliantly illustrated by Chris Jevons:

‘This is a zesty action packed picture book with some potential links with the traditional story of ‘The Enormous Turnip’ which could be discussed with children. When I used to be a teacher that story never enticed any children to try eating real turnip, but I wonder if children might try eating some real beetroot for themselves?’

This is a beautifully illustrated picture book with a simple message that celebrates the joy of a father and daughter spending long lazy days together – pleasingly romantic but never sentimental.’
