The Lovereading4Kids comment
Interest Age 5-8 When is a fib not a fib, asks Ros Asquith in this wise and funny little story for Barrington Stoke’s Little Gems series. Robbie is six, and still learning how the world of grown-ups works. He loves his Uncle Poached Egg and believes all his stories of mermaids and pirates. Told that his uncle is a fibber, he decides to follow in his footsteps: he tells his mum he’s going to a friends for tea after school but instead goes to play by the burn. When his mum realises he’s missing, panic breaks out. All ends well though Robbie has a soaking in the burn. Robbie’s eye-view of the world is beautifully expressed though Ros Asquith’s words and Mairi Hedderwick’s lovely colour illustrations. One of Barrington Stoke’s Little Gems series the book is accessible to all children, including those with dyslexia.
