It was a wonderful day for snuffling truffles

"What a birthday treat!' thought Mr Snuffles ...'

Follow Mr Snuffles' frustrating woodland quest for his beloved truffles.  But is he on the right scent?

My Thoughts

This is a beautifully produced book with such an exquisite cover illustration that before you even open it you've relaxed into what you can already sense is going to be a delightful tale.  

The story is written in rhyme, so is lovely to read to yourself and, as I discovered, even better to read out loud.  There is lots of repetition for developing minds and some nice word building. 

The story, and the illustrations, have an old fashioned fairy tale feel to them which will appeal to both children and adults.

With its  beautiful production and birthday theme, this would make a delightful gift or by it as a treat to yourself.  You won't regret it.

My copy of Mr Snuffles' Birthday will now go a local school library as part of the fabulous BookBuddy initiative. If you are a teacher, or a prolific reader with books to spare, do check it out and help to share the joy of reading.

Our Castle By The Sea

Growing up in a lighthouse, 11-year-old Pet's world has been one of storms, secret tunnels, and stories about sea monsters.  


Teachers - have you discovered @BookPenPals? A new initiative pairing authors & illustrators with schools to make reading recommendations via postcards. They're pretty oversubscribed, but if you're interested it might be worth getting your name on the waiting list. They have some fabulous authors on board.
