Charlie Cook's Favourite Book

I am insanely jealous of the talents of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.  The duo have created a whole series of great quality, funny and entertaining picture books for children ... and adults!

A clever concept.  This one begins with Charlie Cook reading a book then each double page leads to the inside of a different book and it all goes round in one big circle ending back with Charlie again at the end.  Follow magazines, pirates, newspapers and enclyopeadias - top marks for the inclusion of non-fiction!

The rhyming couplets and rhythm keep the pages turning at a quicker pace than The Gruffalo.  The illustrations by Axel Scheffler are as to be expected, there is always something new to spot in the finer details.  There are depths to this story, I believe that's the reason it's stayed a favourite in our family as it's an ideal read for siblings.

My Book Corner loves this, it's been designed with the parent in mind - the parent who will be reading this story over and over!

Another thumbs up

Another great book from Julia and Axel. This one won't grab you on the first read like the Gruffalo does but give it a second read and you will be hooked. Very cleverly written, a story that goes full circle with great illustrations.
