Rainy Day by Emma Haughton


Rainy Day by Emma Haughton

It's far too wet for the fair, and Ned thinks his special day with Dad is ruined. What can they do when it's pouring with rain? Luckily, Dad has plenty of ideas and gradually Ned finds out that rainy days aren't so bad - and they don't last for ever. Emma Haughton's first picture book is a surprisingly sunny tale about a rainy day. The delightful story is reflected in the beautifully atmospheric paintings by talented young illustrator Angelo Rinaldi.

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