The History of the Beano The Story So Far by D C Thomson

The Lovereading4Kids comment

Michael Rosen picked The Beano Annual as one of his favourite books: "A cornucopia of nutty, bad, silly ideas, tricks, situations and plots.'"

William Nicholson – April 2010 Guest Editor remembers The Beano: What more can I say? The single most formative reading of my childhood, which made Thursdays a day of full colour and deeply peculiar satisfaction. I will never forget Smiffy in the Bash Street Kids emitting the immortal sound, 'Muffled eek.'

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

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!

Tracey Chorley

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

Sam Bateman and family

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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

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.

I think Lovereading4kids is an amazing company because of the friendly staff and the fabulous chance to read great books before publication.

Adam Graham

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.
