Charlie Cook's Favourite Book by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler
This really original book takes the reader on a journey through a series of different books, beginning with Charlie Cook, who is reading a book about a pirate captain. The pirate is reading about Goldilocks, who is reading about a knight, who is reading about a frog, and so on and on, with all sorts of characters and different types of books. Harry grabbed this to read as soon as he saw it, and he was fascinated by it. The illustrations are perfect (with a few elements that are reminiscent of other books illustrated by Axel Scheffler!
Fox's Socks by Julia Donaldson, illustrated by Axel Scheffler
Fox's Socks is part of the Tales from Acorn Wood series, celebrating its 15th anniversary. This series is aimed at younger children, and this book is a story about a forgetful fox, looking all around his house for his socks. Each page has a flap to lift and the language is simple and repetitive - perfect for little ones. There are four books in the series - Fox's Socks, Postman Bear, Rabbit's Nap and Hide-and-Seek Pig.
I received these two books to review.
