The Lovereading4Kids comment

At last, a book to celebrate scootermania! A variety of kids and scooters glide across the pages, depicted in Jim Smith’s instantly recognisable, bright, cartoony illustrations. Katie Blackburn’s rhyming text sets up all sorts of scooter scenarios, and each page has a different scooter adventure, from ‘sunny day’ and ‘caught in a shower’, to ‘covered in stickers’ and ‘flower power’. It’s huge fun to look at and to read out loud. One, two, three, Scoot! ~ Andrea Reece


Scoot! by Katie Blackburn

From the illustrator of the award winning Barry Loser series and the author of Where the Wild Mums Are, comes this hilarious picture book, crammed to bursting with scooters. Drawn in Jim's bright trademark style and with a joyful rhyming text from Katie, this is sure to be a hit with all young scooter riders.

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.
