February 2019 Debut of the Month | A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month February 2019 | What better present can a princess receive than a pudding making machine!

But the present has an unfortunate impact on the princess; it reveals that she has never had to share. Luckily, her friends take matters into their own hands and soon they too are pulling the levels and turning the wheels and together they all make the most fabulous puddingly treats – including a giant meringue. The moral is well mixed into this bubbly tale which is vibrantly told in verse by Sally Duran.
February 2017 Fascinating Facts Book of the Month Children will find this book useful, effective and helpful, as well as fun, entertaining and stimulating. Busy, colourful spreads themed by subject or setting are full of little scenes, each one accompanied by lists of words to help children to be more precise or to increase their vocabulary. On the animals page, for example parrots ‘copy, mimic, imitate’; a bear’s fur is ‘soft, fuzzy, bushy, shaggy’; here children will also learn words such as camouflaged, carnivore and herbivore, as well as bedraggled and dishevelled. There are pages dedicated to telling a story, encouraging children to put all these new words to use. Well designed and really attractive to look at this is a book to inspire a love of language. ~ Andrea Reece
