The Lovereading4Kids comment
Award-winning author/illustrator Michael Foreman brilliantly releases everyone’s favourite characters from a story and turns them into a powerful new army which can stop the building of a new superstore and so save a very special bookshop. Led by Origami Girl, Puss in Boots, Alice and the White Rabbit, the Tin Man and Toad of Toad Hall storm the Houses of Parliament to persuade them to stop plans. When that doesn’t work, Origami Girl calls up reinforcements and soon Robin Hood, Long John Silver, Elmer the Patchwork Elephant and the Little Princess are squaring up to the bulldozers and diggers on the building site. Can the Origami army win? Michael Foreman celebrates the power of favourite characters to win over hearts and minds! ~ Julia Eccleshare
The Little Bookshop and the Origami Army by Michael Foreman
When the Mayor decides to close down Joey's favourite bookshop in order to build a big superstore, Joey calls upon his friend, Origami Girl, to help. Origami Girl creates an army out of characters from famous children's books to put a stop to the mayor and the builders before it is too late!
