The Wrong Book is full of humour, characters ... and lots of giggle inducing interruptions!
It's just perfect for reading out loud - hence the decision it was chosen as the focus for National Simultaneous Storytime 2013, (more on that, including some great activities, later).
Nicholas Ickle, resplendent in his top hat, really wants to tell his story - doesn't every little one? Unfortunately poor Nicholas has to contend with a variety of rude interruptions which always happen just when he is getting started.
Who let an elephant in? There are no elephants in this book - he is in the wrong book! Urm, so is the monster, pirates, queen ... chaotic scenes indeed.
Encouraging prediction skills and empathy, this is a gem of a picture book with a great ending from the talented Nick Bland.
The Book App version of The Wrong Book is also worth checking out, Frank Woodley does a great job of capturing poor Nicholas Ickle's mounting frustration!
