Mariella, Queen of the Skies
I read this book to my 5 year old daughter and asked her what she wanted to say about it.
Her favourite part was when Harrison (baby brother) asked Mariella to make a forever lasting lollipop. She said she didn’t like it when Mum said she didn’t want to hear that Mariella was inventing.
She thought the pictures were great, she really liked the one of Mariella sleeping on a cloud.
The part of Mariella making friends made her smile.
I found it stop started a lot and to me didn’t seem like a story. It was very cheeky that Mariella didn’t want to go to sleep. Like lost little boys and girls her age I’m sure.
The illustrations are very sweet and interesting, they help tell the story.
However it was a good book for my daughter to try to read herself. And the facts at the beginning were really interesting. And my daughter loves the spot the difference at the end
