I bought these for my 5 year old reluctant reader. She really isn't keen to read anything but the quirky pictures and the play on words used in these books really seems to entertain her. Also the fact that they have so few words to read makes them good for her. Examples off the top of my head that we've enjoyed are
rob a rabbit, rob a baby, rob a pirate, rob a robber (with amusing pictures to go with them)
a story called 'push and pull' which literally just has those three words in it but which has pictures of children pushing and pulling various dinasaurs and monsters.
She also loves the 'stories' which use pluses. Eg. snowman + sun = puddle, car + car = crash etc. I think its mainly because she's been doing addition in school.
They are also quite funny as an adult.
I must say though that I do have to cajoul her into reading them. She'd much rather i read them to her but they are the kind of books that are interesting enough that she will go back to them (although more than anything she just wants to play!)
