Day three of Little Tiger Press's "Reading Rocks" Week - Let's take a look at "Mighty Mo" by Alison Brown (Little Tiger Press)
Oh No! Or should that be "Oh NO!" Mo the Racoon is a well-meaning little fellow but try as he might, he just can't seem to get anything right!
Living at the Golden Dodo Zoo, Mo kicks his heels around as bored as bored could be. So what CAN he be good at?
In Alison Brown's latest fantastic book, we meet Mo who really only wants to be good at something - anything - but keeps messing up. Mo tries his hand at Hairdressing, to disastrous results. Mo tries to be an ice cream man, but no one's going to want to clear up the catastrophic mess left in his wake (and no flake!)
Perhaps though, Mo has hidden talents - only revealed when a sneaky and nasty burglar goes on the prowl in the zoo, looking to steal the infamous golden dodo (look out for him on every page - Charlotte absolutely LOVED spotting him and finding him and your tiddlers will too!)
Fun and energetic, with Alison's fabulous illustrations and storytelling prowess coming to the fore. Another corker of a summer read for Little Tiger Press's Reading Rocks campaign!
Charlotte's best bit: Looking out for that sneaky burglar, creeping around the zoo (and hiding in the most amusing places!)
Daddy's Favourite bit: Alison Brown makes it look SO EASY to produce such lovely books. A corker!
