‘Rhyming stories seem to be all the rage at the moment but unless theyâ€™re well written, the rhyme works against them.

Add to that Tim Budgenâ€™s chirpy, chucklesome illustrations and the outcome is an altogether tasty read aloud. And then there are those counting opportunities and potential for discussions on teamwork and sharing.’
