Esio Trot
Author: Roald Dahl Illustrator: Quentin Blake
As a family we really enjoy Roald Dahl books so I was excited to read this to my daughter. It was a nice quick read, took 3 10-15 minute chunks at bedtime. It was easy to read and the illustrations helped my daughter follow the story. She enjoyed the story a lot, once she sussed out the secret plan she said it was a very clever story. It wasn't as silly/funny as other Roald Dahl books, but it was still a very good story.

Barking for Bagels
Author: Michael Rosen Illustrator: Tony Ross
This was a lovely story. It's a great length for children in between picture books and longer chapter books. My daughter loves that it was from the point of view of the dog, and thought it was all really funny. Even I enjoyed the book, it has a good sense of humour and it's easy to read.

There's a Dragon in Your Book
Author: Tom Fletcher Illustrator: Greg Abbott
Both my 5 year old and 2 year old loved this book, it's interactive and fun. My toddler found it hilarious blowing at the Dragon etc and we have to do the book over and over again.

Captain Underpants and the Preposterous Plight of the Purple Potty People
Author: Dav Pilkey
My 5 year old loved this book! It was a lot of fun, the typical silly humour you expect from these books. It is quite wordy (all the made up science terms etc) so probably better suited for slightly older children. The pictures help guide the story and keep her focused too. My daughter is excited to read the next one.

Follow the Track All the Way Back
Author: Timothy Knapman Illustrator: Ben Mantle
My kids loved this story. It's a lovely bedtime story with a lovely message. My 2 year old loves the pictures and the train noises.
