WWW Wednesday is a meme hosted by Taking on a World Of Words that simply asks three questions.
What are you currently reading?
Max The Detective Cat: The Disappearing Diva by Sarah Todd Taylor Illustrations by Nicola Kinnear (Nosy Crow)
This lovely series is about the adventures of a pampered kitty who is expelled from his home by a haughty aristocrat and finds shelter and a role of Theatre Mouser at the Theatre Royal. Rather appropriate for World Theatre Day!!!
I love the playful narration and the perfect punctuation of illustrations and page decals- I’m loving this gorgeous little book, (even with the sad beginning) and I will be collecting more for when Littlefae to read when she is ready, though I’m sure a read aloud will be on the cards soon too.
Oh and the picture above TOTALLY doesn’t feature the gorgeous turquoise foiled cover!!
The Book of Colours by Sarah Dyer (Templar)
Tinyfae is really enjoying the educational board books at the moment, we’ve been rereading books about shapes, colours and counting. Like her sister did she adores this book by Sarah Dyer which has a different approach to colours.
What did you recently finish reading?
The Paper and Hearts Society by Lucy Powrie (Hodder Childrens)
I LOVED this book. I have a review in the works but I HAVE to say this book is just wonderful, authentic, wistful and honest account of the pressures of 21st century adolescence when you just love books and want to be accepted, but still delivered with a tenderness suiting the intended readerships age.
Murder Most Unladylike Robin Stevens (Puffin)
I’ve been wanting to read this now iconic series for ages but not been able to fit it in amongst my reading plans (or Littlefae picked it on free picks) and I’ve really enjoyed it- I adore Hazel’s narration and vulnerability. I will be dropping heavy hints to family that I would love to receive the box set should any gifting occasions arise!!
Daisy 006 and a BIT by Kes Grey and Nick Sharratt (Red Fox)
We had an afternoon OBSESSED with Daisy 006 and a BIT she has asked for more.
She has been a bit of a reluctant independent reader with early chapter books recently but wants the longer more ‘involved’ plots. I hope it leads her into the illustrated young reader books such as Daisy: The Trouble with The Zoo By Kes Grey and Gary Parsons; Cover Illustrations by Nick Sherratt (Red Fox)
Added reviews from last weeks reading include:
What do you think you’ll read next?
I have no ARCs at the moment which means I get free choice!!!! and I’ve narrowed it down to magical things:
A Most Improper Magick Stephanie Burgis (Templar)
The Apprentice Witch James Nicol (Chicken House)
The Thirteen Treasures Michelle Harrison (Simon & Schuster)
Or MANY OTHERS!!!!
Fabio The World’s Greatest Flamingo Detective: Mystery on the Ostrich Express by Laura James and Emily Fox (Bloomsbury)
LittleFae won through a Toppsta giveaway and we are SO excited!!
When we read the last Fabio we did some activities as we read along including analysing the crime scene, suspects and making predictions we revisited at the end. I’d really like to do that again.
