5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
If you are not familiar with Elwyn Tate then you need to try and change this. This beautifully illustrated book is a perfect place to start and is a fine example of how to create a book specifically for the Kindle HD. Your children will pester you to read this book to them and because it such a lovely book then you will enjoy it too.

3.0 out of 5 stars two pages missing!
Just downloaded and love the book and art work, but 2 pages have nothing but a large fuzzy camera and exclamation mark! Ruins the story.

Beautiful pictures bring to life this lovely book. My daughter loves it. Even though Christmas has long passed we still read it most nights. Just a shame it isn't longer.

Warm story with beautiful art work. Very exciting to see Santa. Kids got very involved. I would recommend this also as an early school reader.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely Christmas Story, 22 Sep 2013

This review is from: The Deep and Snowy Wood (Christmas Picture Book) (Kindle Edition)
The illustrations and style of this book is perfect for the Kindle. I have been looking for a children's book to show my granddaughters for a while but don't think many of them work well as they often seem to show two pages which make the screen seem very cluttered. The illustrations are lovely
and the story perfect for Christmas. Have also downloaded My T Rex has a toothache by same author.

The illustrations are very beautiful. The story is simple but the rhyming prose is charming and will appeal to children of all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous Children's Book, 12 Aug 2013
This review is from: The Deep and Snowy Wood (Christmas Picture Book) (Kindle Edition)
The Deep and Snowy Wood is a rhyming book following three animals; a deer, a mole and a squirrel as they run, dig and hop their way, across, under and above the snow in search of... well...something. The question being - where are they going and why? And, only on the last few pages is there any indication of their destination, which I won't spoil for you.

The rhyming is superior and never loses rhythm, and the illustrations are superb. This is not always so with all children's books, but here they are perfectly partnered; with both and graphic art and written text flowing seamlessly together. With a tremendous amount of credit to the author, Elwyn Tate, it's all very professional, which makes such a difference. I love the way all the animals are wrapped in scarves and how the little mole's underground home looks so cosy and welcoming. There are plenty of other wonderfully depicted animals too, for little ones to point to and identify, and the winter scenes are gorgeous.

Although this book is seasonal, it is one that can be read at any time of year, and no doubt will be read over and over again at the behest of small children. It is now the absolute favourite of the youngest member of my family, aged two and a half, and the first thing she asks for at bedtime. A real must for any small child's bookshelf and very possibly a future classic. Highly recommended.

I love reading it. My mummy read it to me and I like it so much. The page when the deer runs: that's my favourite one. I liked it when Santa Claus came.
