A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month June 2019
Harry Stevenson may look like an ordinary guinea pig and he may behave like an ordinary guinea pig in that he spends his time eating and sleeping. But Harry Stevenson is not your average creature in a cage. Although he has no special powers he seems to get caught up in some amazing adventures. This volume contains two wild and wacky adventures in which Harry does all kinds of unexpected and crazy things. They are fun to read and perfect for readers who are just starting out.
The Adventures of Harry Stevenson is Ali Pye's first fiction series and was inspired by a real-life guinea pig (who turned out to be a girl and was re-named Harriet Stevenson).
Julia Eccleshare's Picks for June 2019:
The Adventures of Harry Stevenson by Ali Pye
Secret Suffragette by Barbara Mitchelhill
Duck and Penguin are Not Friends by Julia Woolf
Cyril and Pat by Emily Gravett
Where's Mr Astronaut? by Ingela P Arrhenius
Meet Harry Stevenson. He doesn't live in a castle, or a witch's cottage, or anywhere exciting like that. His home is in a flat with seven-year-old Billy and his mum and dad. And at first glance, Harry doesn't seem any different from your average guinea pig. He has ginger fur and sparkly black eyes and likes nothing more than snacking on a piece of broccoli. But don't be fooled! Harry may just want to sleep and eat (and then eat some more) but somehow he always manages to get swept up in adventures: whether it's surfing the Pacific on a picnic plate or accidentally attaching himself to a helium balloon.
