‘Perfect for igniting your child’s imagination’ Lovely words for Fum from Naptime Natter

Naptime Natter enjoyed Fum by Karl Newson and illustrated by Lucy Fleming

Fum Spread 1 LR RGB

‘FUM is a fun modern fairy tale with sprinklings of the old favourites added to create an exciting new story that, at the same time, feels like one of the classics. Leo loves FUM, we read it most days and it is often pulled down from the bookcase at bedtime too. If you have a child who loves fairy tales, giants and enjoys an adventure then I am sure they will love FUM , it is also a good read for the grown ups too!’

‘You can almost hear the family of giants thundering across the countryside’ Wonderful review of Fum from The Letterpress Project

We’ve just had a great review of Fum by Karl Newson and illustrated by Lucy Fleming on The Letterpress Project

‘I really like the energy of the vivid, colourful  illustrations whereby you can almost hear the family of giants thundering across the countryside … I think that this picture book would be very popular with young children because of the rhyming and repetition and could also be used with older children to build on existing fairytale knowledge.’
