October 2013 Book of the Month A deliciously entertaining story about friendship and loyalty and why they matter. One a lemur likes you there is nothing you can do to shake it off! A young boy, befriended by a lemur, tries to shake it off by travelling across the sea, up in the sky, through the desert and more. But the lemur – and its friends are never far away! And that turns out to be just as well when the boy tries to make his way home! ~ Julia Eccleshare

Synopsis

How to Lose a Lemur by Frann Preston-Gannon

Everyone knows that once a lemur takes a fancy to you there is not much that can be done about it. While being followed by lemurs, a boy tries hiding up a tree (without luck), disguising himself (without success) and even tries to sail off in a boat to get away from them - only to discover the lemurs snorkeling behind him. Eventually, after climbing mountains, taking trains and going through the air in a balloon, he finally thinks that he has lost them. Or has he? In the process, he has managed to get himself lost, and it is only then that he realizes that the cunning lemurs might just come in handy after all.

From the highly acclaimed author of The Journey Home and Dinosaur Farm comes this new three part series: How to Lose a Lemur, How to LOVE your Lemur and When Lemurs Come to Christmas.

Frann Preston-Gannon's The Journey Home has been shortlisted for the Waterstones Children's Book Prize 2013, Junior Magazine Design Awards (Best Picture Book and Best New Talent categories) and the Cambridgeshire Picture Book Award 2013.

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.

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

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.
