May 2016 Debut of the Month The creators of this stylish Picturebook take a simple idea and turn it into an appealing adventure, and one that should also encourage children to get out their pencils and crayons and start drawing themselves. Doodle Girl has a magic pencil so when she discovers a yellow triangle in her sketchbook home she can turn it into something fabulous – a magnificent aeroplane. She flies off with her friends and straight into another fun adventure involving crocodiles and ice cream! It’s a great way to demonstrate that a doodle can be the start of any adventure you want. The book comes with extra treats including a Doodle Girl sticker sheet and giant colour-in poster. ~ Andrea Reece

Reviews

With a giant, free doodling poster and sticker sheet included inside, the book is full of creativity and fun for all to enjoy. Parent Talk It's a brilliant mash-up of storytelling and activities with a giant colouring poster and a ton of stickers to get your little ones busily helping Doodle Girl solve a tricky mystery. Read it Daddy It's a lovely story about imagination and creativity...great fun for working on together with your child. Jennifer's Little World Blog I'm all for anything that opens up the imagination and encourages creativity in young children. With the current tick box mentality that is all too prevalent in schools today, I see fewer and fewer opportunities being given in the classroom and even in nurseries for children to follow their own imaginative ideas. All power to Doodle Girl and her flights of fancy... Red Reading Hub This is really imaginative and I would love to see this become the first of a series. Parents in Touch The creators of this stylish Picturebook take a simple idea and turn it into an appealing adventure, and one that should also encourage children to get out their pencils and crayons and start drawing themselves. -- Andrea Reece LoveReading
