There are plenty of reasons in this funny rhyming picture book why you don’t necessarily want any help with your daily routine from animals.
Some are a bit disgusting, like the stinky skunk in the bunk bed or the seal with his pile of raw fish for breakfast! Others are a little bit scary like the shark in the bath or the howling wolf telling bedtime stories! But the animals mean well really. They just want to help. So what’s the best idea of all? Forget about helping and lets all play together instead!
Little P loves the animal antics in this book. The kangaroo who wees on the bathroom floor makes her laugh every time! Patricia Cleveland-Peck really understands the mind of a child. How to make them laugh and how to make them scared just enough ……but not too much. David Tazzyman’s illustrations are perfectly chaotic and capture the craziness of the animal mayhem!
Little P loves to re-read this one over again and she will take it away and ‘read’ it independently so this scores an EIGHT out of TEN on the ‘P-OMETER’!!
