‘Do Not Open This Book’ by Andy Lee, illustrated by Heath McKenzie (Studio Stories)

Originally written as a first birthday gift for his nephew, George, this book was never actually meant to be published. Luckily for us, it was!

Monster is absolutely desperate for you not, under ANY circumstances, to turn the pages of his book. He’s prepared to bribe you, threaten you, and give you the silent treatment. Just don’t turn the pages! But why? What’s Monster so worried about?

Sure to lure in any young reader – particularly those with a certain disregard for the rules!

‘I Say Ooh, You Say Aah,’ by John Kane (Templar Publishing)

You cannot read this book and expect your audience to remain silent. The book demands the happy shouting of excited children.  They’re given a series of phrases to shout-out and actions to perform at various points to help tell the story.

I tested this title on my class and I can confirm that they absolutely loved it! Every single member participated with complete enthusiasm. Brilliant for encouraging even the most reluctant of readers to enjoy books.

Happy reading,

Library Girl.

*Many thanks to Studio Stories and Templar Publishing for sending me these titles to review*
