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!Sally OwenIt is possible to use this review for promotional purposes, but the following acknowledgment should be included: A review from www.gwales.com, with the permission of the Welsh Books Council.
