Synopsis

Supposing - Ifridi by Frances Thomas

Supposing you woke up and the house was on fire and there was a big black hole in the floor beside your bed and you fell in and a spider fell in on top of you ...In this skillfully sensitive book about nightmares, that is just what a little monster's nightmares are about, that is, until his mother soothes him and lays all his fears to rest. Her stories of pancake breakfasts, country walks and buying balloons soon reminds the little monster that his worries were just bad dreams.

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.
