Customer Review

on 11 January 2010
It might be because earlier books by this author & artist have been so good, but I found this dissapointing. The words in the first Gruffalo (for example) flowed beautifully whilst clearly telling the story to even a very young audience. The text in Tabby McTat is overly wordy at times and and doesn't flow nicely. My kids (who are real bookworms usually) lost interest in the story and focussed almost entirely on the pictures, including their own commentary about what they saw. This says a lot about the quality of the pictures (fantastic as always) but less about the story telling. I also noted that none of my children (2, 5 and 8 yrs respectively) have asked to read it or have it read to them again. When the Gruffalo and the Gruffalo's Child were released, they were read almost daily and the children memorised the words. So in summary, nice pictures, nice story in principle, but the text doesn't flow and capture a young audience as well as previous books from this author.
