The Lovereading4Kids comment

Perfect for the very youngest readers, this ‘peepo’ story provides endless fun as storybook characters turn up dressed as different animals. A pirate, fairy and wizard are each entertainingly transformed into a cow, pig and a sheep for the party. Open the big double doors at the end and join in yourself!

Synopsis

Fancy Dress Farmyard by Nick Sharratt

There's a party at the farmyard, and it's going to be fancy dress. Children will love lifting the flaps to discover which animals are hiding behind the disguises. Pig's come as a pirate, Duck as a superhero and Sheep as a wizard. Nick Sharratt's new book combines all those toddler favourites: peek-a-boo flaps to lift, bouncy rhyming text and lots of animal noises to join in with.

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.

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.
