When we visited the library this last time, I saw a book by Ian Whybrow that I’d not read before, and so I picked it up for the kids. We’ve read the Harry and the Bucketful of Dinosaurs series by Ian Whybrow and Adrian Reynolds, so I figured this book would also be good.
I was not disappointed. The children love Russell Ayto’s illustrations and the various animal noises in the story. I personally found it obviously British in sentence structure, despite Americanised spellings, which made me miss England a bit. We might have to pick up a copy of the book to own, since the children keep asking us to read it over and over again. Pick it up – I don’t think you’ll be sorry.
