The Entertainer

The Entertainer from Emma Dodd is a delightfully entertaining picture book - complete with that perfect 'OH!' moment.

It's Billy's birthday. When the door bell rings the bear shaped entertainer is ushered in and welcomed without so much as a second thought.

... because why else would a bear be at the door?

This particular entertainer is a sure fire hit; although his bad manners including the fact that he unfortunately devours ALL the party food, sure does raise a few eyebrows.

'He licked his lips, his tummy rumbled.

Over to the feast he stumbled.'

Emma Dodd uses jubilant rhyme and rhythm throughout with just a few exceptions .... those fab yellow notes that crop up from time to time. These are a clever angle. Written with an enjoyable tongue-in-cheek tone, the author is reminds us that this entertainer's manners should not be copied at home! This author has got your back parents!

Emma's illustrations are perfect for a party themed book - bright, eye popping colours dominate the pages. My favourite? Oh it has to be the childrens' reactions to the bear's antics, which Emma portrays with great energy. Pure genius - especially when Billy is literally double over with laughter. Emma's illustrations capture her characters' enthusiasm and joy perfectly.

... and why is the entertainer acting so, urm, strangely?

The Entertainer will is an awesome picture book to gift as a birthday present.
