A fabulous new picture book from the bestselling author of Aliens Love Underpants. A read-along rhyming text that will capture children's imaginations.


The Great Snortle Hunt by Claire Freedman

On a hill bumpy-steepy, there's a house scary-creepy, And it's said that a Snortle lives there, Now nobody's been, so nobody's seen, But Mouse whispers, Come, if you dare! Have you seen a Snortle? Would you want to? If you're brave enough, join Mouse and his friends as they go on a night-time Snortle hunt. Aaaaaagh! What's that?

It’s really exciting to read and review new books, thrilling to see my reviews online and I love finding the final published copies on sale.

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

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.

Angela East

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.
