Laura, who blogs at The Butterfly Mother has written a lovely review for our new set of Maverick early readers. She called them, “a wonderful addition to any classroom as their humorous content will really engage the children.” And she had lots of lovely things to say about each of the stories as well!
Grumpy King Colin
“A fabulous message to any unruly toddler or preschooler in my opinion! Caterpillar really finds King Colinâ€™s antics funny and weâ€™ve had a good laugh with this one.”

A Gold Star for George
“Firstly, that winning isnâ€™t everything and secondly, that having friends who appreciate you is much more important than being the best at something. Â These are great lessons for children, especially those who have just entered the school environment where they are becoming aware of being compared to other children for perhaps the first time.”

I Wish I’d Been Born a Unicorn
“This is another great book about friendship and also a great way to teach children to become comfortable with who they are.”

Pirates Don’t Drive Diggers
“Two extremely popular topics for childrenâ€™s books â€“ pirates and construction â€“ are combined here in a really unique and fun way. Â And again, another fab message about how children donâ€™t want to be pigeon-holed.”

The Four Little Pigs
“I seem to have come across a lot of books lately which are a modern twist on a classic fairy tales but this is one of my favourites.Â Plus there are a couple of great twists that give the traditional content a really fresh look.”
