Review published on August 3, 2018.
I thoroughly recommend this delightful children’s book, once I started reading it I could not put it down and I am pretty sure that I am way, way older than its target audience.
It is laugh out loud funny in places and the characters are not only well written but ones that readers of any age can relate to. It is one of the best younger readers books that I have read for ages because it is imaginative, original and fun.
The story is about Fidge who is inadvertently thrown into the world of Wimbley Woos, which is the setting for her little sister’s favourite story book. Together with her cousin Graham (who is a hypochondriac that is frightened of just about everything), a giant plastic carrot on wheels and a theatrical toy elephant they set out to save Wimbley land from the machinations of the dreadful Wed Wabbit.
I will be passing this awesome book on to a much younger person and I think that they will enjoy reading it even more than I did. This is definitely one to gift if you want to impress your younger relatives.
