Summer reading review round-ups!

The Guardian and The Sunday Times both reviewed their favourite children’s books of the Summer over the weekend, and we were delighted to see some Nosy Crow books included!

In The Guardian, Imogen Russell Williams reviewed two of our first books published in collaboration with the British Museum – 123 and ABC. Russell Williams writes: “For the very youngest picture-book fans this month, Nosy Crow’s collaboration with the British Museum yields two enticing board-books, 123 and ABC. The alphabet book features stylish photographs of exhibits from around the world, ranging from Japanese porcelain elephants to Austrian woodcuts of oranges; the counting book gives infant curators the delightful illusion of handling ancient hats, dolls, keys and rings.”

And for The Sunday Times, Nicolette Jones reviewed There’s a Werewolf in my Tent, the latest hilarious book in the Baby Aliens series, written by Pamela Butchart and illustrated by Thomas Flintham. Jones writes: “Teachers are evidently the scariest creatures imaginable, as proven in Pamela Butchart’s tale, for 5-8s, of a school camping trip in which missing sausages and Miss Moon’s hairy legs convince young Izzy that There’s a Werewolf in My Tent!. Accessible and lively, this is a romp about friendship, imagination and misunderstandings, with bold illustrations by Thomas Flintham that recall the work of Jacqueline Wilson’s illustrator Nick Sherratt.”
