My children are six and eight-years old. They loved the rhyme and cadence of this story and compared it to one of their favourite children’s authors, Julia Donaldson.
The story embodies playful mischief, suspense, surprise and a crisply satisfying resolution. The detailed illustrations by Hannah Sames are at once endearing, captivating and whimsical. Our family eagerly awaits a sequel.
The book is amazing!
We love Arturo. Molly requests it every night and wants to know what happens on his next adventure!
I am a big fan of rhyming books for children...
...but it’s very easy to get it wrong…but this book rhymes properly, so hooray!
