A Useful book about Friendship.

A deliciously dark and funny tale, in which friendship comes before food. It's brilliantly and wackily illustrated by the uniquely talented Ben Cort who has of course also delivered on Aliens Love Underpants etc.

Synopsis

Little Ogre's Surprise Supper by Timothy Knapman

Everyone knows that ogres eat children. Everyone except Jack. So when Little Ogre meets Jack and says, 'I want you for supper', Jack does a funny thing. He doesn't scream or run away - he's delighted to be invited! Poor Jack doesn't realize he is the supper - a special birthday supper for Little Ogre's Mum! But Little Ogre and Jack get along well, and when it's time to put Jack in the cooking pot Little Ogre is faced with a very difficult decision. Will Jack become a meal, or a new best friend? This is a deliciously dark and funny tale, in which friendship comes before food.

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!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

At @HHSHaringey we love @lovereading4kids because our pupils can practice reviewing & get free upcoming books before anyone else!

Helen Swinyard – Heartlands High

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

Georgie Rowe – age 16

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

Lorraine Woods

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.

Katie Lonsdale

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

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.
