Warduff and the Corncob Caper by Mat Head


Warduff and the Corncob Caper by Mat Head

Warduff is a cat with a penchant for napping and fish cakes. His snoozing is disturbed one evening by a call from Corncob Farm. There's a fox alert and the frantic animals urgently need his help! Can Warduff come up with an absolutely brilliant plan to outwit the wily fox and fast?


It's a good fun read. The School Librarian Girls and boys alike should like Warduff and the Corncob Caper. The happy tale is well-illustrated with strong, bold pictures. Evening Standard I do love it when a picture book makes you laugh aloud and Warduff and the Corn Cob Caper does just that! The Bookseller Funny names and fanciful language are bolstered by droll drawings to create a pleasing rustic escapade. Kirkus Bright and bold and full of humour. INIS

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.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

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!
