Book pages Max the Brave
Max the Brave
I read it to pe324 aged 3 & to RE324 aged 1
This hilarious book tells the story of Max the kitten who is in search of a mouse to chase, the only problem is he doesn't know what a mouse looks like.  I think the story is more diverting for adults than children as it is largely through the illustrations than the words, so I have to explain a lot of the subtleties to my LO (such as the birds all talking to Max from the ground after he climbs the tree to talk to them).  But the story is simple and well told, and the ending made me smile.  My daughter likes the story, but I'm not sure she fully understands the nuances which make it far more entertaining to me, although I'm sure in time it will be well loved.  The illustrations are simple but clear and add so much to the story.

Book pages Mini Rabbit Not Lost
Mini Rabbit Not Lost
I read it to pe324 aged 3
This is an adorable story about mini rabbit's quest for berries in order to make cake.  We loved spotting the berries on every page, although of course mini rabbit doesn't see them, and the beautiful illustrations are very interactive for little ones with plenty to talk about and spot in each picture.  Mini rabbit's love for cake and ensuring that mummy has enough berries to make the cake is wonderful, and I'm sure will strike a chord with many.  I won't give away the ending but it made me laugh, so very like the toddler I have at home!!  This story had both me and my daughter laughing, and we will be seeking out more mini rabbit stories!

Book pages Grandma Bird
Grandma Bird
I read it to pe324 aged 3 & to RE324 aged 0
A sweet book about an adventure at grandma's, who Noi doesn't think really cares, but it is clear she really does!  An approaching storm allows Noi to befriend a little bird, and Grandma's rescue of Noi leads to rescuing a number of birds as well, but it is the first bird who decides to stay.  I found this book better written than the other Benji Davies books, it flows better in my opinion.  I like the way Noi and the six cats are repeated at the beginning of each book, and the continuity of the characters in addition to the illustrations.  A lovely addition to our library and loved by my children (although it often leads to us reading the Storm Whale and the Storm Whale in Winter books too so bedtime does stretch out somewhat!).
