I am a huge fan of Julia Donaldson.
I The children love most of her books. My collection of her books is slowly growing and this is our current favourite.
There is something about the way she writes, the way it rhymes. You can basically sing the book as you read. I was a bit wary about this book when i bought it. Dragons was not up Moo’s street, but she loved it from the word go and she is always asking for it.
I also love the way she incorporates other characters from other books into it. They do not actually play a part they just sit in the background. So in this one, its the squirrel from The Gruffalo. Maybe not the squirrel but when Moo saw it she instantly new what and where it was from.
If you have not read this, and are a fan of Julia’s books then its a definite must to read to your little ones! I am linking this post up with Maggie Stone and Lucy for the what we read linky.
