Synopsis

Zoe and Beans: The Magic Hoop by Chloe Inkpen, Mick Inkpen

Zoe has found a fun new game to play! When Beans jumps through her hoop he magically transforms into ...Beans the rabbit, with floppy ears, or Beans the crocodile, with snappy jaws! But could Beans the elephant be a jump too far? The hoop may be magic but it's only small - and a great big elephant could easily get stuck...

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.

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.

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

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
