I Want to Be in a Scary Story
I read it to Soopa aged 4
We read this book around Halloween so it fitted in nicely with the spooky theme. My daughter doesn't like witches at all and there are a few scary witches in it which put her off a bit. The narrative is a conversation between the narrator and the monster which is a little bit difficult to keep going and for the child to follow (despite me impressing myself with my monster voice). Overall though it just didn't completely grab us. It was too complicated with the different voices and at the same time the story didn't keep us interested. It's a shame as the idea is good but it just didn't work for us - might be better for an older child who is reading it themselves.

This is a sweet, reassuring story about a little train that goes on an adventure on his own. We enjoyed this as a bedtime read and my daughter particularly liked the different train noises that the little train sang as it went on its adventure. Ultimately it's a feel-good story about remembering to listen to your parents who tell you things to help look after you. The illustrations are lovely and we especially loved the foxes.

This is a pleasantly unusual and quirky tale. When I first looked at it I wondered if it might be a bit scary for my little girl as it’s all greys and muted colours but I couldn’t have been more wrong. She very much engaged with the story – to the point of making up different endings of the story for herself and she loved the characters especially the slightly eccentric duck. I really enjoyed reading it with her as it’s not formulaic and the story takes a genuinely unexpected turn. We enjoyed discovering it together and have read it every evening for a week. It’s both a fun story and has really sparked her imagination.
