This is perfect for new readers with fun and lively illustrations punctuating the story throughout The Bookseller Toad of Toad Hall would enjoy this as bedtime reading. Vulliamy's perky drawings are as accessible as a superior comic and guaranteed, alongside Hughes's racey narrative, to get young readers behind the wheel Observer
