One of our Books of the Year 2014 Brilliant Lucy Cousins has created a fabulous new book which is full of holes! The young woodpecker is taught to peck by its father. The only trouble is…once it has learnt to peck a hole, it just can’t stop! There are holes in everything and young readers will love to explore them with their little fingers while they laugh at the ridiculous places the woodpecker has pecked. ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

Peck Peck Peck by Lucy Cousins

A hole lot of fun! Today my daddy said to me, It's time you learnt to peck a tree. Little Woodpecker has just learnt how to peck and - ooh! yippee! - what fun it is! Off he goes, on his first big pecking adventure, and he peck, peck, pecks his little heart out. He pecks the hat and then the mat, the tennis racket AND the jacket...just LOOK at all the holes he has made!

Comical, contemporary and original! A stunning new picture book title from Lucy Cousins, with colour so exuberant it leaps right off the page. Lucy Cousins introduces readers to a brand new character - a joyous and enthusiastic little woodpecker who simply LOVES to peck and is happily encouraged to peck, peck, peck as much as he can! With a bouncy, read-aloud text, beautifully bold illustrations and pages die-cut with lots of little holes, now in paperback this book belongs in all collections!

I love ‘LoveReading 4 kids’ because they let you read and learn things you’d never dreamed of learning before.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
