We like to read


Whatever by William Bee

A lot of the books I have featured in this series have been from my childhood, printed in the eighties (like the Helen Oxbury and Usborne books) or even from the sixties and seventies like this John Hurford book. This book however is from 2006 so one of the more recent ones in our collection. I remember reading it to my younger brother (who would have been five at the time) and it making me laugh back then. It was lovely to see Tom reading it to Wilf for the first time and smiling at the unexpected ending. The illustrations are fab too, simple colour and lots of lovely lines, yum.

Last fortnight my favourite book from your picks was 'Transport by Alain Gree' that the lovely Lori from Wild and Grizzly has been reading. I actually picked Wilf up a copy as soon as I saw her post, those illustrations are just too fantastic not to.

Can't wait to see what you are reading this week! Thanks as always for joining in! x

Love william bee. We have several of his, all are beautiful and all witty. They make such a change from some of the sickly sweet stuff out there. He is one clever chap.

Hehe, I just read an interview with an american family living in Northern Island over on the cup of jo blog and she was talking about this book and about how British books for kids are so dark and disturbing! Hilarious! Must get a submission done for this week, I missed the last one - it's scary how fast time goes!
