The Lovereading4Kids comment

This is a great read-aloud storybook for parents and children alike. It has funny, clever, rhyming text about a little rabbit who learns that some things aren’t as scary as they first seem and a bad-tempered bear who isn’t as grizzly as he would like to think. Complemented by some wonderfully eye-catching and humorous illustrations you won’t get much better than this.

Shortlisted for The Children's Book Council of Australia Book of the Year Award

Synopsis

The Terrible Plop by Ursula Dubosarsky, Andrew Joyner

An irresistible new picture book about a little rabbit who learns that some things in life aren't as scary as they seem. Based on a Tibetan myth, a sound in the forest sets all the animals running for their lives from the Terrible Plop. Children will be charmed by the wonderful zany energy of the illustrations and the rollicking rhyming story.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

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