However, despite a little disappointment on my part, I do love Mick Inkpen's style of writing, and the illustrations are beautiful. I'm quite fussy about children's books, as there's so many on the market, but so many are remarkably average and forgettable. This is definitely better than average. Not quite up to Julia Donaldson standards, in my humble opinion, but close, worth reading, and we'll be eagerly awaiting more Zoe and Beans adventures.
After three children it was great to find a new range of books that we could enjoy. I love the Zoe and Beans range, great pictures, easy to read and my 3 year old loves the title of this book alone. A story about pants is always going to funny to a 3 year old. Good buy and has been read many times so far. We now have the whole set and look forward to more being released.
