Regina and Dolly who write at, Diapers and Daydreams have reviewed the latest George the Giraffe and Friends story by Alice HemmingGeorge and the New Craze

Dolly and George

“Dolly really loves George. I mean REALLY. We read “A Gold Star for George” at least once a week, for over a year now. (You can check out that review here) She had a good laugh at the animals looking for cards in the garbage! “Yucky” she said 🙂 We love this creative story of friendship and teamwork, and a main character who knows what it means to problem solve.”

Thanks for the amazing review! Read the whole review here.

Not Enough for Queen Fluff

“This new rhyming extravaganza, brought to life by Catalina Echeverri’s gloriously detailed and characterful illustrations, sees the born ‘poetess’ on top form […] Lyon works her trademark magic in a story bursting with rhyme, some sound common sense and plenty of giggles as the bunnies fill their burrows with nasty nettles, prickly thistles, stinging bees and wriggly worms to deter their fanciful queen from staying the night.”

George and the New Craze

Alice Hemming, who is passionate about picture books, plays a winning card in this gentle but fun story with a surprise twist in the tail, while illustrator. Kimberley Scott turns the menagerie of animals into quirky, lovable little characters. Perfect bedtime reading…”

“But the story line certainly made me chuckle. I can vividly remember my brother and his Panini sticker books and football cards were the rage, even in the dark ages of my own childhood. There’s a funny story line and we’ve enjoyed reading this picture book together.”

“The doings of the Wildlife Park inhabitants continue to delight  and I particularly love that spread of Kimberley Scott’s displaying all ninety-nine cards plus spares. Did I notice a certain MD of a certain publishing company thereon?? Spot him too in the album spread, left-hand side, bottom row, third card along.”

Thanks for the lovely review Jill!
