Reviews

A story to warm the hearts of young children while they enjoy the entertaining illustrations by Gwynneth Jones. Another delightful book from EK Books School Days Jones's narrative is warm and restrained enough to sustain short attention spans whilst the illustrations excite the tactile senses and illicit quite a bit of cheeky humour. Keep an eye out for the chook in rollers. So clever. Boomerang Books Blog This book is ideal to use as a starting point to discuss with kids what friendship means and the different types of friends. It's a beautifully illustrated book by Gwynneth Jones who brings the characters to life especially the gossiping hens. The Mummy Project Patch and Ruby is a heartfelt metaphor about everyone's yearning for a soul mate and the inevitable obstacles along the way. While younger children will embrace the humour and quirkiness of gossiping poultry and tiny guardians of the veggie patch, the deeper tale of finding someone to call home resonates on every page.
