The Owl, the Aat and the Roar by Tanya Linch


The Owl, the Aat and the Roar by Tanya Linch

Ben likes to take his favourite toys to nursery with him and the toys love going with Ben. Then one day Ben takes the Roar along, too. The Roar is not like the other toys - he is mean and spiteful and picks on them. But when Ben accidentally leaves him at nursery that night, and it's dark and quiet, will the Roar be feeling so bold? Seen through the eyes of Ben and his toys, this is absolutely perfect for any 3+ child. Short sentences and simple text with a gentle message about getting along, make it ideal for reading together.
