Reviews

Praise for Mum and Dad Glue: An incredibly powerful book about a boy coming to terms with his parents

. I'm a huge Lee Wildish fan and think he's definitely a name to watch for the future. I defy you to read this without a lump in your throat. -- Kate Skipper, Waterstones Buyer 20090301 Lee Wildish's illustrations are lovely. The characters have a rough charm that really draws you in - there are hints of Quentin Blake's ink drawings, but Wildish's style is very much of its own. -- Bookbag 20091111 An excellent book aimed squarely at young children. -- Nursery World 20100114 A touching tale that resonates with empathy and poignancy. -- Junior 20100201

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

A great way to introduce kids to great books, authors & genres. Parents can find age-appropriate books to share with their children.

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!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.
