To be honest we were sad to hear of the passing of Elizabeth so when we were given the opportunity to review one of these magical books of the Eco-Friendly characters we jumped at the chance. Whilst some of the language may be a little dated, the story telling that has always been prevalent recaptures the readers imagination as the wombles find their way to solutions as well as pass on their ecological message.
Beautifully told, backed with reasonable dialogue alongside some good prose and hopefully these characters will continue to fascinate another generation. Great stuff.
All these books are great for bedtime reading to our little ones. Each book has a long story with each chapter being a self contained story which is just long enough (or short enough) for reading at bedtime. The chapters are easy to read allowed and have held our twins captivated. Plus you get to re-live all the adventures of our childhood favourite characters.
If any more are published in the series we will buy.
