Tallulah wants a pink fluffy rabbit for her birthday. In spite of searching the shops, her parents can't find one anywhere! Then Gran has a brilliant idea - she'll knit one. Unfortunately, it turns out that Gran's knitting skills aren't all they could be, and the result is a pink armadillo!

Although Tallulah is disappointed, she doesn't want to upset Gran, so she tries to like her new companion. She can't help thinking how much better it would be if he were a rabbit, though. Like all good toys, Milo just wants to make Tallulah happy, so he sneaks off to try and make himself look more like a rabbit. When Tallulah comes home from school to find him gone, she soon realises that she misses Milo, and she's finally able to accept him for what he is.

This is a lovely, lovely story about friendship and acceptance, beautifully written and illustrated. If you're into knitting, you'll be delighted to know that the author posted a knitting pattern online so that you can create your very own Milo!

I have really enjoyed sharing this book with my two-and-a-half year old daughter, and will be looking out for other titles by this author!

This review refers to the hardback edition of 'Milo Armadillo' published by Walker Books in 2009.

By Daisy
This is the best book I have known recently.
I have found this at library first, but couldn't resist to buy it.

The drawing is pretty and funny, the story is heartwarming.
I strongly recommend it to all children.

By MummaG
We were given this book when we named our little boy Milo and were so chuffed! Although he's still too young to understand the story we love reading it and know it will be a favourite for a long time to come. It's a lovely story with great illustrations for any child but will always be a special book for us.
