'Grumpsy', having read this to his three children is now buying a new copy for his grandson. I cannot recommend this short book more whole-heartedly!
Thus, with a story that will never really age, Mrs Large has the problem of all parents when all the children are home, and that is trying to find some peace for a few minutes. I was too old to read this or have it read to me when it first came out, and so for others who have never heard of this before, get it and read it to or with your children, and perhaps they will get the message. Sometimes we all need a break.
This story has long been a favourite with my children and me for that matter as I can understand Mrs Large wanting 'five minutes' peace'!!
My children have always enjoyed jigsaw books and this one is lovely. It contains seven 12-piece jigsaw puzzles. I have bought this for my 4 year old niece and would say the jigsaws are suitable for ages 3-6. Makes a lovely gift.
