Unicorns, Mermaids, and Magical Tales

Julia E. Clements & Sarah Northwood

unicornsThis 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 searleThis 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

poppyThe 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

Grace & Bobo: The Trip to the Future

Written by Peter Blakey-Novis

Illustrated by Leese Johnson

2400G&BI 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
