‘The Snugglewump goes on his adventure at night and all the pictures of dark blue skies with yellow twinkly stars make this the perfect book to read just before your little one goes to bed.

The Snugglewump really is a lovely little story, it delivers the message that even if you don’t feel it sometimes, you are special and there is always someone who treasures you and loves you dearly. I would definitely recommend The Snugglewump if you are looking for a new story to read at bedtime.’

‘I love the fact that the story rhymes as it makes it flow really easy. I enjoyed reading this story to Ava and I’m sure it will be read many more times.’

Wishker COVER

‘I took from this story that you cannot always have what you want . If you do it may not always be the best that’s why sometimes adults or people say no to things. I think this is a really important lesson for children to learn and reading it in such a fun manner doesn’t make it boring. It makes it fun and exciting.’

‘A fun story that sparks your imagination’ Naptime Natter’s lovely review of Wishker

Leo and Mum at Naptime Natter really enjoyed reading Wishker recently by Heather Pindar and illustrated by Sarah Jennings!

‘I really like this story, it delivers an important message but does so in a light hearted and funny way. Leo is 3 and he finds it difficult a lot of the time if we say no to his demands so this book is helping him to realise that sometimes Mummy and Daddy have to say no for a reason, we are not just being mean.

This book gives you plenty to talk about with your little one once it has finished, you could ask them to name all the animals Mirable wishes for, you could count how many clowns and acrobats come to Mirable’s house and you could ask them what they would wish for if they met Wishker the cat.

Leo and I both really enjoy reading Wishker, it is a fun story that sparks your imagination that is great to read any time of the day but we enjoy reading it for story time before bed.’

Safely Nestled and Noah enjoyed The Snugglewump by Lou Treleaven and illustrated by Kate Chappell recently

‘I think all kids will certainly relate to this story, as they always have their firm favourites. Noah was sad that the Snugglewump felt left out. He was generally concerned why the other toys thought they were more superior. I really loved all the illustrations in this book, every page looked amazing – the colours, page layout and the characters themselves.’
