Product Description

Amazon Review

A storm is raging through the park causing Percy, the park keeper, to have a sleepless night worrying about the damage being done to his beloved park. When he gets up the next morning he finds the old oak tree has been blown down. This is a disaster for all his animal friends who used the tree as their home. Fortunately, Percy is on hand to help find them a new place to live.

The simple text and expressive illustrations perfectly combine to create a picture storybook that is ideal for reading aloud to young children. The poster-sized gatefold at the end is an added surprise and is a superb example of Nick Butterworth's skills as an illustrator. (Ages 2 to 6) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

After the Storm:
‘…look no further for the best present for any child from two to six.’ Susan Hill, The Sunday Times

The Rescue Party:
‘…it’s good for reading aloud to under-fives, and later the six-pluses will still want to read it themselves.’ The Independent on Sunday

Percy’s Bumpy Ride:
‘Imaginatively detailed illustrations and just the right amount of suspense.’ Practical Parenting

One Snowy Night
‘A heartwarming bedtime tale…’ Susan Hill, The Independent

This is a beautifully illustrated book with a lovely story of Percy the park keeper who helps the animals after the big old tree is damaged in the storm - my two boys (currently aged 3 & 5) love it and are happy to read it over and over and love the surprise last page :D

We absolutely love Percy the Park-keeper stories as they are beautifully written and the illustrations are just wonderful. It is a joy that many happy hours were spent reading these stories to our children and that our daughter gave this as a gift to a little boy who will hopefully love it in the way that she did. The animal characters are all so expressive and appealing and is a lovely way for children to get to know their animals and what they look like. An absolute gem!

Another gift for my 3 year old g'daughter to get her away from 'in the night garden'. This is spot on for a thrilling adventure with all the old favourites. I love the maps too. Much more interesting than soft toys mucking about and speaking incomprehensibly. Delivered quickly too.

The book was delivered quickly and was in good condition. The story is great for 5 to 6 year olds and was really enjoyed by all the children in my class at school. They especially liked the large folded poster at the back of the book that opened up to show them where all of Percy's animal friends lived in their new tree home. The only problem with the poster was it tended to tear quite easily and children found it difficult to fold back up because of it's size.

We have two other books in this series. We love the stories, though this particular one is not our favourite. We do love the beautiful pictures, especially the fold out picture at the end. There is so much detail to explore. We find something new in the picture every time.

I bought this off the back of 'One Snowy Night' which we really enjoyed. 'After the storm' is a bit weak in comparison. The story is not as captivating and a bit 'wordy' (if that make sense).
The illustrations are nice but nothing special and the fold-out tree house not as interactive as other Percy books.
Never mind.

We love Percy the Parkkeeper and this lovely story of how he helps the animals in the park find new homes after the storm wrecks their original homes is just gorgeous. The pictures and story are really well done and just another great item to the Percy collection.
