No prizes for guessing what happens when Tim finds a huge tin full of red paint! It takes him 3 seconds to decide what to do with it, 3 minutes to get the lid off and 3 hours to paint the front room. Mum’s reaction goes on for a long, long time afterwards…Greta full-colour fun.


Tom And The Tinful Of Trouble by Nick Sharratt, Stephen Tucker

Take a tin of bright red paint. Take a boy called Tom. Mix the two together. How long before the trouble starts?

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

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.
