The Big Adventure by Elina Ellis


The Big Adventure by Elina Ellis

Fox, Bear and Moose want to have a really BIG adventure and travel to Africa, or to the North Pole, or even to the Moon! But big adventures need a lot of planning, and can be quite scary. Luckily, their friend Chicken has a different kind of adventure in mind.


An amusing, well illustrated story about four friends on a 'big

- something we can all relate to! They decide to go on a big adventure, and readers can follow the story as they pack what they need and discuss where to go. The book has lovely illustrations which really show how the friends are feeling, and there is a little bit of comedy in the dialogue. With references to the North Pole and other exciting places, parents will all be hoping the story ends up somewhere more mundane. It does! The four friends journey to Auntie's house and agree that sometimes, the small adventures are the best. I couldn't agree more. -- Hannah Breslin SLA Magazine A cat burglar is on the loose and Inspector Clawso has been asked by the Cats Organisation of Detectives to try to solve the case... The reader is asked to find the clues contained in the pictures and to help solve the crime as well as solve super sleuth puzzles along the way. A funny, clever, inventive and interactive story that children will love. The illustrations are bright, colourful and full of detail and humour and they work well with the text. Page design adds to the enjoyment of the story. The book is a joy to read and explore and is definitely one that children will want to return to again and again. -- Annie Everall SLA Magazine
