      A great book to read with your children. Very clever characterisation.

      We are lucky in Rotherham that the kids under 5 in every household are entitled to a free book every month from the Dolly Parton Imagination Library scheme. We end up getting sent some books that i probably would not look twice at otherwise that are actually very good stories. This is an excellent example of this. I like a story with a bit of a twist, and this one fits in this category. It has 2 characters - hungry fox, and delicious-looking piglet. One day piglet knocks on the foxes door looking for rabbit. The fox immediately thinks of his favourite dinner - pig roast, and assumes it must be his lucky day, or is it? We follow him preparing to make his dinner, with a couple of 'helpful' suggestions from piglet. It is a very busy day for fox, and the clever little piglet manages to avoid being eaten. I will not say how as it would spoil it for you. I will say that the last page of this book makes me chuckle every time. It is a 30 page book, aimed at children around 3 years old. About half of these pages contain a full page illustration, which are very detailed and there is a lot of detail on each picture to talk about with your child. It was written by Keiko Kasza, a Chinese author i have never heard of before. I think the artwork was designed by Gunta Alexander - it is not entirely clear in the book which i think is a slight translation issue which thankfully does not happen in the text. If you like other clever books like 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes' that i reviewed last week, books that have characters that are not quite as you expect, and a nice twist at the end, then you will love this one. It has quite large text and fairly easy words so i think it is one that will continue to be a favourite as my children learn to read and can read it to me.
