This hilarious rhyming book is just pure good fun for little readers. The huge hairy mammoth has a ‘ridiculously large appetite’ and his great friend the Bug is beginning to despair of ever finding the snack that will finally satisfy him. Clever little Bug comes up with the perfect plan to solve the problem.
Vibrantly coloured illustrations with some wonderful use of different fonts and text placements make this a visual delight for a little human.
This is Hollie Hughes’ debut picture book and I foresee that we can look forward to more fun from this writer. Stay tuned for a review that features illustrator Leigh Hodgkinson in a book which she also wrote.
Highly recommended particularly as a read aloud for Preps upwards.
