The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shortlisted for the Greenaway Award 2007.

Judges' comment:

This is a quality production with a layout that is easy to follow, a speedy, gripping feel to it, and big meaty spreads which incorporate lots of interesting detail. The characterisation is great: its use of animals to depict different traits is very well done, and the notepad device is also very clever. This very visually literate book is also laugh-out-loud funny.


Scoop! by Cathy Tinknell

Monty Molenski is a humble reporter who is convinced that he's always missing out on the big stories. But could it be that Monty isn't noticing what's going on...right under his nose? Atmospheric retro art and moody lighting make this another great success from the husband and wife team who brought us "Guess Who's Coming for Dinner?"

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.
