What's the Matter Aunty May? is a funny, rhyme filled adventure, from Peter Friend.
Breaking News: this picture book made the shortlist for the 2013 Prime Minister's Literary Awards.
Good intentions don't always lead to best the outcomes, and unfortunately poor Aunty May discovers this during a very chaotic day indeed.
Our little narrator, decked out in bow tie, begins this by story sipping a cup of tea whilst asking his Aunty May the question,
'Why did you scream, 'Enough! Enough!'
See, the vase that he tried to clean isn't, well, a vase anymore. The repairs to the bathroom sink, led to a bit of a soggy mess. And that cake and the ceiling fan ---- ooooo, not good!!
The humour comes from our little narrator's ignorant bliss at the chaos he has left in his wake - because, well, he was only trying to help.
What's The Matter, Aunty May? is entertaining, vibrant and just perfect for reading out loud.
