Bad Boy, Good Boy by Kay Chorao


Bad Boy, Good Boy by Kay Chorao

Sam's mum thinks he is being careless running through her garden, but it turns out he was saving his best friend's hat from the wind; he helps his grandpa make pancakes but then takes the rap when grandmother arrives to survey the mess; and his parents think Sam has disobeyed them by going out into a storm, when in fact he was saving a little hatchling who had fallen from its nest. The style is part picture book and part comic panels. Kids love dogs and they will identify with Sam as he struggles between what is right and wrong and what is good and bad.

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.

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!

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!
