The Guardian have published their latest roundup of the best new children’s books, and we’re delighted to see glowing reviews for both Wigglesbottom Primary: Super Dog!, written by Pamela Butchart and illustrated by Becka Moor, and Complete Night Explorer’s Kit, written by Robyn Swift and illustrated by Sara Lynn Cramb.
Of Complete Night Explorer’s Kit, Imogen Russell Williams writes: “For those aged five and over, Nosy Crow and the National Trust have produced Out and About Night Explorer, an appealingly sturdy backpack kit containing torch, glow-in-the-dark stars, a constellation guide and a book about nocturnal wildlife and the night sky, with enticing illustrations by Sara Lynn Cramb. The informative text is finely judged – enough detail to satisfy, but not to overwhelm – and the games and activities are winners.”
And of Wigglesbottom Primary: Super Dog!, Imogen Russell Williams writes: “Children who favour short, punchy tales should love Pamela Butchart’s Wigglesbottom Primary: Super Dog!: three splendid school stories of canine mayhem, ersatz mashed potato and sports day rotten eggs, brightened by Becka Moor’s cheery images.”
