Fifi and the Flowertots: Jelly Good Fun!

Fifi and the Flowertots: Jelly Good Fun

TV Tie-in

Amazon Link: £3.99

Published by HarperCollins Children's Books

Whether you like Fifi and the Flowertots or not, the TV programme seems to be insanely popular with toddlers. I find it all a bit sugary and sweet but there are a series of book tie-ins to accompany the programme and Jelly Good Fun is probably the best of a fairly mediocre bunch. Fifi and the twins make three jellies but forgetful Fifi forgets the vital accompaniment for Jelly at tea time - ice cream. 
Naturally no Fifi story would be complete without some interference from resident naughty person Stingo and his slightly dim assistant Slugsy. Will Fifi remember the Ice Cream in time to thwart Stingo's plan to keep the jellies to himself? You can probably guess the answer. 

If your children love the Channel 5 / Fiver TV show, they'll probably love the books. 

Charlotte's best bit: Wobbling the jellies

Daddy's favourite bit: None
