Bridget Fidget is like every single toddler you've ever met. Full of seemingly boundless energy, more curious than a cat, and with a wild imagination that produces an endless sense of wonder.
Joe Berger's books are as busy as their central character. When a mysterious (and huge) parcel turns up at Bridget's house, her flights of fancy lead her to believe that her parents have ordered her a surprise pet.
What happens when Bridget dives into the gigantic cardboard box and polystyrene snow? What does she find?
You'll have to read and find out yourself, of course. The book fizzes with energy and is perfect for children who are chock full of wonder and enthusiasm.
Charlotte's best bit: Bridget's 'pet'
Daddy's favourite bit: Slightly dim mummy character.
