It feels extrodiary to wish Puffin books a very happy 80th Birthday. Puffin have been bringing together children and books , and feeding their imagination for many years.
I am not a fan of books that actually scare children which is why I like this one so much, it takes a holiday that is known for its spookiness and made into an story with a delightful sense of bizarre with a side of sibling rivarly and surprise.
The good (and bad) thing about working in a library is that you find little gems on the shelves nearly every shift…I have had to learn to not bring every book home that I love. I couldn’t go past this book because it is perfect for my story time session I am taking this week. When it comes to The Very Hungry Caterpillar I normally prefer the original book, but this lift-the-flap version is so sweet and perfect for my toddler group this week.
