Synopsis

Three Cheers for Wales by Wendy White

Emyr Rhys and Betsi Wyn are back! Between cheering for Wales and cheering up Da-cu, days out with Mam-gu and dressing up like a frog, they have plenty to keep them busy and amused! Exciting times - and funny moments - fill these five new stories for young readers by award-winning author, Wendy White, with humorous illustrations by Helen Flook.

Reviews

This is the second collection of stories about Betsi Wyn, her family and friends, following on from the award-winning Welsh Cakes and Custard. The five stories all stand alone, though they share the same characters two children and their grandparents. Betsi and Emyr visit a Victorian school, go to a rugby match, dress up for a party and head off to the seaside. The stories, though written in English, contain a smattering of Welsh, which is translated for non-Welsh speakers. The whole book is set in a recognisable Wales Cardiff and Tenby are visited making it a book which clearly delights in its setting. The simple black and white pictures add to the books charm, and each story is an ideal length for parents to read at bedtime, or for 89 year olds to read to themselves. Well worth a look!

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

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.

Shannon-Louise Masters – age 15

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

Erica Motoc, age 7

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

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

Tracey Chorley

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

Judi Davies – Aberdare Girls Sch

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.
