The Lovereading4Kids comment

Poppy is really looking forward to the summer holiday. She knows she is going to love everything about being by the sea. Especially the chance to be a pirate! But, when it comes to boats, it turns out Poppy doesn’t like them as much as she thought… Is there any boat that will help Poppy find her feet on the water? Easy to read, this is a warm-hearted family story featuring a delightful dog.


Poppy the Pirate Dog (Early Reader) by Liz Kessler

Poppy is very excited to be going on holiday, especially when she is given a skull and crossbones scarf to wear. But life as a pirate dog at the seaside is trickier than she realises...

Liz Kessler, author of the Emily Windsnap books, joins Francesca Simon, Vivian French, Marcus Sedgwick and Sally Gardner in a carefully constructed Early Reader programme with short accessible chapters and full colour illustrations.

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

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

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

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

This company is amazing; not only is it is a great opportunity to get books and review them but everyone is so friendly and supportive!

Jemma Rubens, age 10

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

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.
