Synopsis

She could be a chef and cook yummy treats, or she could be a musician and join the parakeet band! After trying lots of jobs from being a musician to an artist, Elsie begins to give up hope. They've all ended in disaster! But when an emergency breaks out at the Snack Shack, Elsie's perfect job is found - a firefighter!

Part of the series Storytime which also includes -

When I Grow Up by Gill McLean.

What's the Time Wilfred Wolf by Jessica Barrah.

Beautifully illustrated, QED Storytime introduces young children to the pleasures of reading and sharing stories. Discussion points for parents and teachers are also included.

Reviews

'This is a lovely little story... a great addition to our home library.' Let Them Be Small- blog

'The bright illustrations are a joy to look at, adding more drama to this cute tale. Nayu's reading corner What we love about the QED Storytime range is the discussions that emerge around the story, actively encouraged by helpful story discussion pointers raised at the end of each book.' Read it Daddy

'The reader warms to Elsie as she tries to find her role and learns that we should never give up; something always turns up. QED's Storytime books are an excellent collection - there is plenty of variety, with a range of excellent authors and illustrators giving a different feel to each book. Schools and libraries would do well to purchase each one in the collection in the knowledge this would give a well-rounded selection.' Parents in Touch

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.

I love all the books they recommend & put up for me to review. I also love the fact that they give new authors the chance to share their boo
