Penguin’s Hidden Talent is a real charming little story that is warm, full of character and a whole lot of fun. The illustrations are bright, colourful, cute and attractive. We were glued to the pages from the off and my daughters attention was held throughout. This is a fab little book that is full of wit, definitely worth the read.

A little while ago we got a book called Peely Wally out of the library, which we loved, so when we got the next book Polly Wally we were super excited to start it! We were not disappointed, the bright, bold, colourful and fun illustrations are a real treat. The simplistic storyline if perfect for little ones, there are parts of it that are repeated quite a few times throughout the book, which I think is brilliant for little ones who like to try and read the book back to parents from their memory (like my daughter). So the bits that are repetitive are so easy for her to remember.… Read more >>>
