The Telegraph’s best books of the year for young children

Shifty McGifty and Slippery Sam, by Tracey Corderoy and Steven Lenton, and The Grunts all at Sea, by Philip Ardagh and Axel Scheffler, have both been featured in The Telegraph’s list of the best books of the year for young children. On Shifty McGifty, Helen Brown writes “Corderoy’s rich, rhyming text is a pleasure to read aloud and the ending got a big laugh in my house.” Of The Grunts all Sea, Brown says, “Philip Ardagh’s Grunts are the 21st-century Twits and his wonderful wordplay is as fabulous as ever in The Grunts all at Sea.” You can read the full piece here.
