AN OUTSTANDING BOOK - for parents & their children
on 20 March 2005
This book is FANTASTIC - an outstanding picture book that preschool children and their parents cannot help loving. The illustrations are lovely - bright and appealing - and the story is one of the best I've come across and my children have a lot of books. Billy chooses a bucket for his birthday and spends the day peering into it. His parents laugh at the amazing things he says he can see - sharks, submarines and mermaids among other things. But they should have listened as his Dad learns to his peril when he borrows the bucket to wash his car. The twist in the tale never fails to make me smile and after it his parents are looking at amazing aquatic creatures in the bucket with Billy too. However, they won't be borrowing it again I'm sure.
If you buy one book this month, then I'd recommend Billy's bucket whole-heartedly.
