Tuck Your Vest in by Daniel Morden


Tuck Your Vest in by Daniel Morden

A humorous picture book looking at the trials, tribulations and triumphs of a morning in nursery. Bold, colourful, humorous illustrations throughout bring the characters to life. An English version of Nawr 'te, Blant.


The entertaining lark in this picture book is the fact that each sentence rhymes: Tuck your vest in, Iestyn, Oh my gosh, Josh! Blow your nose, Rose. A day at school or kindergarten (it isnt clear which but is useful for both) is full of activity and fun. Iestyn has a super time with his friends, and there is just enough rude vigour for kids of four to six to have fits of giggles over Chanelle and her smell. The in-your-face brightness of Carpenters illustrations and their interesting perspectives will appeal tremendously too. The expressions on her round-faced children are a treat, and there is plenty of detail to enjoy. The combination of Morden and Carpenter is to be mightily encouraged.
