ReadItDaddy's Chapter Book of the Week - Week Ending 3rd February 2017 - "Polly and the Puffin: The New Friend" by Jenny Colgan and Thomas Docherty (Little, Brown)
Posted by ReadItDaddy at 9:30 AM Labels: Chapter Book of the Week 2017, Jenny Colgan, Little Brown, Polly and the Puffin The New Friend, Thomas Docherty
We loved the previous two "Polly and the Puffin" books (Polly and the Puffin, and "The Stormy Day") so we were delighted to see Book 3 in our in-tray.
This time Polly and Puffin are joined by a new friend and her rather raucous parrot. As Polly prepares to go to Big School she's a bit apprehensive, but when both Polly and Neil (her loyal Puffin chum) make new friends, life takes a new turn and there are all new adventures to be had.
Light-hearted, breezy and fun, Jenny's stories (complimented perfectly by Thomas's brilliant artwork) are absolutely perfect for kids who - themselves - might be taking the first steps towards Big School and also their first independent steps in reading beyond picture books.
"Polly and the Puffin: The New Friend" is out now, published by L & B Kids.
