Book reviews by Freya featuring: The Squirrels Who Squabbled and Once Upon A Wild Wood.

Freya was sat next to me as I was writing a book review the other night and asked what I was up to. When I explained, she wanted to review some of her favourite books so, after we’d designed the header (she’s a Procreate wizard), she set to work.

We think both the books are probably suitable for children aged 3-7.

The Squirrels Who Squabbled is a rhyming book by Rachel Bright and Jim Field.

Here’s the blurb:

As the nut bounces crazily though the forest, the squirrels race after it, between the trees, over boulders, down the river and – ARGH! – right to the edge of a waterfall! Working together might be the only way to save themselves now …

A laugh-out-loud tale about friendship and sharing. Perfect for competitive friends and sibling rivals!

I love this funny, colourful book. Bruce and Cyril get up to a lot of cheeky things.

The chase for the last nuts is exhilarating and the ending made me happy.

My rating: 5/5


Once Upon a Wild Wood by Chris Riddell is an exciting adventure which features some of my favourite story characters. 

Here’s the blurb:

Little Green Raincape is on her way to Rapunzel’s party, deep in the wild woods. The way is long and dark, but Green is a smart girl. Smart enough to turn down apples offered by kindly old ladies, smart enough to turn down travel advice from helpful wolves, and above all, smart enough to solve a wealth of classic fairy tale problems – not least mend a lovelorn beast’s broken heart.

Once Upon a Wild Wood is a richly imagined story packed full of familiar fairy tale characters as you’ve never seen them before. Including Red Riding Hood, Thumbelina, Rapunzel, Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, the three bears, the seven dwarfs and many more!

My grandma bought me the hardback version of this book. It features some beautiful illustrations, which I love looking at.

This adventure is easy to read and a real page turner.

My rating: 5/5
