Michael Rosen is, in my opinion, a genius at writing for children. This is absolutely perfect for any children moving on to slightly longer books (it doesn't actually have chapters, but if your child is just moving on to chapter books, this is an ideal choice) or to read aloud. It has humour, fun black and white illustrations and just the right amount of text on each page to be fun and not daunting. The use of repitition also gives a child confidence as they 'learn' the phrases. Brilliant, funny and will appeal to both boys and girls, this will soon become a favourite read.
It's designated 'young reader' so would be a good choice for children newly confident at reading by themselves. It's also a perfect length for a preschooler's bedtime and seems like a 'real' book, a great transition title to other chapter books I have ready for my son.
Elvie is desperate for a pet puppy she can train to do tricks, but her mum brings home a - fish! She tries anyway, but sticks and sitting don't work with Fluff. But she does discover her new pet DOES have a remarkable talent.
And of course farting is the subject of the book. If you're not happy with the word, this isn't the book for you to be reading aloud as the word is dotted throughout without apology. My son adored this, and I had fun pretending to be a fish making tunes out of their bottom bubbles!
A complete story, it's not actually in chapters but designed to be read straight through. Well done Michael Rosen! Very funny and engaging, we'll be moving onto some of your other similar titles next.
Best for the over 3s, but will suit readers and non-readers alike, if their parents enjoy this sort of thing.
Great fun, well illustrated. Only downside is she is now obsessed with farting!
Definitely recommended :-)
