Review

"

There aren't a huge number of words in Penguin's Hidden Talent picture book but the author, Alex Latimer, nevertheless manages to create a lovable anti-hero that we can all relate to, whatever our age!

The story is simple but gives a great life-lesson to young readers...It's a cute, fun book, ideal for readers of any age, that is guaranteed to make you go awwww !

"Warm and witty...Penguin's Hidden Talent highlights the importance of friendship, encouragement and individuality." (Booktrust)

Format: Paperback
In a world where it seems that everyone has a talent and you don't it's always hard to help reassure your young reader that they have a gift that just hasn't flowered yet. This is where this book by Alex Latimer comes in, as it features a Penguin who can't do anything like his friends can and feels that he's a let-down.

Its quirky, it has bright images and the overall message within is a positive one that I absolutely loved. Add to this some charming characters, a wonderful story arc and all in the positive message will filter through to your young reader.

Format: Paperback
This appealed to my husband's quirky sense of humour, but unfortunately not mine. I don't particularly like the illustrations - most of the characters are drawn square or angular which makes them look strange. Whilst the basic moral of the story is OK - that everyone has a talent if you only look for it, and in this case penguin's is organising parties and shows, the method of delivery and execution left me unmoved.

Whilst working on a 'Britain's Got Talent' theme for school, this story links in perfectly. A very cute and well illustrated story
