‘Fum is an excellent fun story that is interactive and makes great bedtime reading. The twins loved it they look at it quite regularly and at least once a week one of them wants it for their bedtime story. At 32 pages long it is the perfect length for bedtime reading.’

‘The book has rhyming text, is well-written and the entire tale from start to finish is so well thought-out. I imagine this is going to be popular with kids and parents alike, and I don’t think you’d regret purchasing it for your little one, or even mind reading it over and over when your child demands it.’

‘An absolute pleasure to read out loud’ Book Monsters sinks its teeth into Fum!

Book Monsters went wild for Fum by Karl Newson and illustrated by Lucy Fleming!

‘This is a really very gorgeously sweet book ideal for young children. Karl Newson is the master of rhyme. I’ve been following his ditties on Twitter for quite some time, and I’ve come across few writers able to play with rhyme quite so effectively. The words flow beautifully, making his poetry and books an absolute pleasure to read out loud.

There is a lot of opportunity to use the text in this book for role play with children, getting them to act out the different family members and characters, so an ideal book to use in schools, particularly for the traditional tales topic.’

How Do You Do Mr Gnu spread1

‘Coughlan’s simple but clever story is a joy and the inventive illustrations of Maddie Frost bring the galumphing Mr Gnu to glorious, graceless life from the moment he tears open his invitation to have tea with the Queen through a dramatic train ride, an action-packed swim up the Thames, a rip-roaring museum visit and an encounter with the household cavalry.’
