We like to read


The Gossip - Jan Pienkowski

I was babysitting for one of our neighbours the other day when I found this book in her kitchen. I was immeadiatly taken back to my own childhood, I loved this book! I went online and bought it as soon as I got home.

Jan Pienkowski actually came to my primary school to teach us to draw when I was around 9 years old. I love his drawings and this book makes me feel so nostalgic (as most of my 'we like to read' posts seem to!).

This is one of those books that Wilf has to read with supervision at the moment though..we did have a ripping incident!

I don't think I've ever seen this book before - I can see it could be v susceptible to ripping incidents though! I pick up books like this in the library, and quickly put them down again!!
How amazing that Jan Pienkowski came to your school - so good! x
