‘Bright and lively illustrations’ The Bookbag reviews Fum!

The Bookbag had some kind words for Fum by Karl Newson and illustrated by Lucy Fleming in a recent review.

Fum Spread 2 LR RGB

‘Told in rhyme, this helps the story flow at a good pace. The bright and lively illustrations also help the story along, and of course little ones need to take a good look at the pictures to see if they can see Fum hiding. The characters all have sweet faces, and it’s nice to see the familiar characters too along the way.

It’s a good story for little ones moving on from board books to picture books as it’s very easy to follow and quick to read.’
