Dilly and the Boo loved FUM by Karl Newson and illustrated by Lucy Fleming

dilly-and-the-boo-blog-boolino-book-review-fum-1

‘We read this over and over and it never tired. There are ample opportunities to express you’re inner thespian due to the large collection of characters, most of whom are recognisable from classic fairy tales, and with the amount of detail put into the drawings there is definitely plenty to discuss with your little one.’

A wonderful review for Mine Mine Mine! Said the Porcupine (also on the book list for the Summer Reading Challenge 2017!) by Alex English and illustrated by Emma Levey

‘The writing by Alex English reads so wonderfully. It’s in rhyme and flows like a real classic picture book which almost anyone can confidently read out loud. Full of expression and fun, but with few words so the important message being explained is not lost on young children. I read this out loud a few times and it sounds wonderful! I can’t wait to do so at a storytime soon.’

‘You’ll love the way it lends itself to reading aloud and how Rebecca Lisle has used a structure that will encourage children to remember elements of the story and even join in. Needless to say, this is perfect for reading time and time again. There’s a lot of fun to be had here in the sharing of Stone Underpants for grown-ups and children, whether it be at home or at school.

Stone Underpants, to put it in simple terms, rocks.’
