Quality of book was very good - even though it had been used. Epic find.
It's not too long ( bedtime, that matters!! ) and has ENORMOUS scope for reader ( mum!! ) to really take on character voices, and have fun reading - the dialogue is short, and enjoyable to read. A bellowing policeman, a snooty firman, a hesitant..guilty boy and a quirky Mr Carp add up to a fun read for all!!!
My 3 year old can finish the sentences, I read two words, he does the rest. These books have such a life to them, and children pick up so quickly on such fast paced well written reads. It's soooo rich in grammar, vocabulary.....FUN for little children. Great stuff.
By the way, unlike many parents who choose to read their children this story, I'm a rookie to this book - you don't need to have read it as a kid to want to share it!!! But, there's always the chance the nippers you read it to may well hold it in their hearts till adulthood!!!!!!
To listen to an adult
It scans well and is easy to read out loud. My 3 year old
grandson was engrossed in the story when read for the first
time. I envisage relearning it by heart
