Shortlisted for the ‘Early Years – Best New Illustrator Award’ and what wonderful illustrations they are and complemented brilliantly by the hilarious storyline of dad, who hates animals and a child who loves them and persuades him to go to the zoo with riotous consequences!!

Synopsis

Dad's Bug Bear by Peter Dixon

Dad hates pets. So a family trip to the zoo is not his idea of fun. When they arrive - disaster! Two African elephants have broken down the walls and all the animals have escaped. Dad insists on rushing home to make sure no run away animals go anywhere near their house. But when they get back, there is something very nasty on their doorstep...

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

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.
