Book Review

I like the thought of a shop that you can go into and then actually be in the story

This story was really funny. I really liked Fred ferret.

The pictures are really good and help you to see what the author wanted you to imagine.

I like the thought of a shop that you can go into and then actually be in the story.

It’s like writing your own story but you doing it like a really life adventure.

Storm’s Mum says: Storm really enjoyed reading this book and has asked if we can get the next one. It was fun to read it together and each night she giggled about what had happened and we talked about what might happen next in the story.
