Kid’s Book Review: Ceri and Deri: Pudding for Breakfast

About the Book and Author / Illustrator

The latest in the educational Ceri and Deri picture book series, Pudding for Dessert teaches children how two people can see things differently: puddings or desserts. It also shows them the importance of community when settling disputes, as well as the value of friendship, in an accessible and engaging way. Max Low’s characteristic humour, imagination and illustration style bring the characters and their adventures vividly to life.

Book Review

I liked the big shouty writing and the pictures

From Sulaymān: I like the pictures. They are like a cartoon. Lots of colours and very interesting. I liked the big shouty writing too because I know when to shout the words.

The story was funny especially the food fight which made me laugh but I’m glad everyone stops fighting at the end. I wish I could have been there to eat all those yummy foods. I would like to read more stories about Ceri & Deri so I can find out what other interesting things happen to them.

Mum’s thoughts: This story shows the young ones how we can overcome our differences to result in something even better. A very engaging story with some great wordplay for the slightly older children to appreciate.
