This review is from: Flanimals: The Day of the Bletchling (Hardcover)
It's a great shame if the Flanimals books get lumped in with the current fad for celebrity-created children's books. Gervais and Steen have really gone from strength to strength with the first three books and "Flanimals: The Day of the Bletchling" doesn't disappoint.
In this fourth book we meet yet more mind-boggling Flanimals, but best of all we finally meet the repulsive Bletchling...and boy do we meet a lot of them! Epic battles ensue, Flans unite, much goo is squirted, and, having said all that, surprisingly there are actually some rather touching moments.
One of my favourite things about the Flanimals books is that once you've read them the first time you can go back again and again and still be spotting new things you didn't notice before, tucked away in Steen's amazingly detailed artwork. I see there's also a special Christmas box set coming up - I'm hoping to get one in my stocking this year.
