Armadillo Magazine has just made its Winter 2017 reviews live and we are so pleased two of our recent picture books are included:
‘In Bonkers About Beetroot, Cath Jones has written a great story about the determination to succeed and achieve what you want despite the negative attitudes of people around you, and Chris Jevons‘s artwork really brings it to life. As with other picture books form Maverick, it’s size and distinctive square shape make it ideal for sharing with a little one by your side, but it will also be a good one to read aloud in class as children will love it – finding lots to laugh at along the way.’
‘This is a lovely picture book that cheerfully smashes gender stereotypes. What a delightful protagonist Rooster is, and what important messages his return to confidence and pride gives, in particular that there is nothing wrong in being different; that everyone can be special in their own way.
The rhyming text is funny and clever, and begs to be read aloud. The illustrations are wonderfully colourful and exuberant and complement the words perfectly. Highly recommended for nurseries, classrooms and libraries and for family use.’
Rooster Wore Skinny Jeans is by Jessie Miller and illustrated by Barbara Bakos.
