Synopsis

Cuil Bheag Og (Tiny Little Fly) by Michael Rosen

A stunning, bold and funny picture book from Michael Rosen and rising star illustrator Kevin Waldron, in the Irish language for very first time! When Tiny Little Fly sees great big toes (and lands on a great big nose), the poor elephant tries - tramp, crush, tramp - but can't catch it. Off flies the fly! The teasing insect easily misses the rhino's roll, squash, roll and the tiger's swat, swoop, snatch too but ...these very BIG animals are getting VERY annoyed! How will Tiny Little Fly's adventure end? Will he get away and fly fly fly? From Michael Rosen and Kevin Waldron, translated by Gabriel Rosenstock, comes this wonderful read-aloud story for the very young that chalks one up for the little guy.

We love Lovereading4kids because they put books in front of us we wouldn’t otherwise have read. They make us more adventurous readers!

Emily Jacques

I love finding new books to read. My mummy and me look at the new ones coming out. I have written reviews of some of them!

Jessica Cobbin – age 7

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

Lovereading is just a convenient way to find new books and hear others opinions on them.

Sarah Murray – age 15

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

Alexander Boxall – age 11

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

Nickey and Tomasz Hawryszczuk

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.

Katie Lonsdale

Writing reviews help the children with their literacy skills and we always read the books together which gives us good quality family time!
