The Twilight Princess

Written by Joe Duncombe & Illustrated by Cong Nguyen

This story was a bit girly so I read it to my baby sister. She liked the colourful pictures. I thought it was clever when the pages changed to brighter ones. The boy in the house is kind like me. 5 STARS. (Abraham aged 6)

Dog Tails: The Swashbuckling Adventure

Written by Joe Duncombe & Illustrated by Cong Nguyen

I really enjoyed the pictures, especially the treasure map. The story was really fun and I have read it three times now. My favourite part is when they find the golden bone because gold is the best. 5 STARS. (Abraham, aged 6).

The Mummy Walks At Midnight by Gemma Paul

Review by Abraham (6)

I really liked this story. Find the symbols which were hiding on the pages was fun and I really liked cracking the code with the Egyptian writing at the back of the book. I give this book 5 stars.

When Millypop & Her Mummy Visited Ice Cream Land

Written by Reka Hall

When Millypop & Her Mummy Visited Ice Cream Land is a lovely story which came about after the author’s daughter struggled to sleep following a bad dream. The child created an imaginary world, filled with tasty treats, from chocolate slides to marshmallow bouncy castles. Our son Abraham (6) thoroughly enjoyed it. 4 STARS. Buy here.

Unicorns, Mermaids, and Magical Tales

Julia E. Clements & Sarah Northwood

unicorns

This is the second book I have read from Sarah Northwood (I’ve read Legend of the Night Unicorn too). And I can say from a 10 year old’s point of view, this book written with Julia E. Clements was nice to read. The stories were good (the odd word was difficult to read) and poems give a nice break between stories.
I would recommend this book to extremely girly girls. 4 Stars. Buy here

The Big and The Little Monster Go On A Picnic

Written by Adam D. Searle

Illustrated by Wendy Trinder

Adam searle

This is a truly delightful book which our five-year-old, Abraham, enjoyed so much he read it twice. The colourful images are very eye-catching, and he said that he learned a few new words, and understood the important message about putting your rubbish in a bin. I’m sure this is a book he will want to revisit many times, and he has already asked for the other Big and Little Monster books. 5 Stars. Buy here

The Adventures of Poppy & Bobo

Written by John Evans

Illustrated by Nicola Anne

poppy

The Pink Elephant is a magically story, perfect for young children. The illustration are delightful, almost vintage looking in style, and the story flows nicely. There is an air of mystery to the story, and our youngest two children really enjoyed this book. 5 Stars. Buy UK and US

Written by Teresa Harrison-Best 

Illustrated by Baz Mac

Our five-year-old bought a copy of Mackerel and the Jolly Daisy at a book event in April. He loves pirates, and the colourful illustrations and rhyming prose made this one of his new favourites. A lovely book. 5 Stars. Buy UK and US

Legend of the Night Unicorn

Written by Sarah Northwood

Legend of the Night Unicorn tells the enchanting tale of Martha, a young girl who travels up a mountain by steam train and discovers that unicorns are very much real. Our eight-year-old daughter thoroughly enjoyed this book. 5 Stars. Buy UK and US

Grace & Bobo: The Trip to the Future

Written by Peter Blakey-Novis

Illustrated by Leese Johnson

2400G&B

I just read with my daughter Grace & Bobo and she just adored it. I could see how she loved the colours of the pages. She asked me a lot of questions, made me read it three times and even wanted to make a drawing. My kid is four years old and she’s starting to read so finding books that she loves like this is a gift to me. Goodreads Review. 5 Stars Buy here
