Liz's book reviews continue - this time with Poppy Cat TV: Blast Off! by Lara Jones
This is a great story book for seventeen-month-old Sophie. It is 17.5cm x 17.5cm which makes it a great size for little hands, and the pages are made from card so they are easy to turn and not-so-easy to rip.
The characters are little animals so Sophie can spot different ones and make the right noises for them, plus point to countless noses, eyes etc. The numbers 5 4 3 2 1 are also written so she is beginning to recognise them also. The illustrations are clear and colourful, although not garish (thank goodness – sometimes kids books give me a headache with their bright, crazy illustrations).
The story, as you would expect, is pretty simple - an adventure on a rocket – but it has enough funny bits like Zuzu opening the rocket door and Owl being sucked out into space, that you can make the story silly and Sophie laugh.
This is a lovely book that would make a great addition to any young child’s library.
A copy of this book was received free of charge. This has in no way affected our opinion of this book and as always our review is completely honest.
