This enchanting story set in the second world war will charm readers of all ages. Illustrated in colour, with a heartwarming text, Jenny the Jeep follows the release of A Story about Ducks, A Railway ABC and Ben. Jenny is different from all the other jeeps but now she is the only one who can save the day, but does she?Each of these titles feature incredibly touching stories by the inimitable author and artist Jack Townend, titles which V&A Publishing has recently rediscovered and they have now been lovingly restored for their first printing since the Second World War.


Jenny the Jeep by Jack Townend

Jenny is a very pretty Jeep indeed - instead of being green like all the others, she is pink! Jenny is proud to be pink but her peers grow increasingly jealous and mercilessly tease and exclude her. When the troops head to Italy, disaster strikes and, when the soldiers ask for help, only brave Jenny can save the day.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

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

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 fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

It’s so easy to find the right book for your child. Such an easy-to-use, yet in-depth website. 100% reliable.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

Sam Harper – age 10

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
