LoveReading View on Pom Pom the Champion

In Pom Pom Sophy Henn has created another endearing little character all parents and children will recognise. After beating his mummy at a board game, Pom Pom decides he likes being the winner, and that from now on he’ll win at everything. For a while he does, though his winning streak isn’t much fun for mum or his little brother. When games in the park with friends prove that no-one can win everything, Pom Pom has a massive tantrum and stomps off to play on his own! Pom Pom’s range of emotions are crystal clear in Sophy Henn’s distinctive illustrations, and his adventures provide parents and children with lots to discuss and to giggle about too. ~ Andrea Reece

Sophy says :  Pom Pom was inspired by real-life events – a very lovely and sweet little girl was having a bit of a moment and stomping around the house telling everyone to ‘Go away!’ She was very persistent and eventually everyone did.

As soon as she realised she had succeeded, she got a bit worried and a bit sad. I found this incredibly endearing and a little bit funny, and the idea of Pom Pom Gets The Grumps came from that. It really reminded me how tough it is to be a toddler, all those new emotions and situations you have to try to fathom all the time. And if I'm honest I want to hurl myself on the floor and yell after 20 minutes in the supermarket, but as a ‘grown up’ I mask it and carry on to the biscuit aisle.
