‘An absolute pleasure to read out loud’ Book Monsters sinks its teeth into Fum!

Book Monsters went wild for Fum by Karl Newson and illustrated by Lucy Fleming!


‘This is a really very gorgeously sweet book ideal for young children. Karl Newson is the master of rhyme. I’ve been following his ditties on Twitter for quite some time, and I’ve come across few writers able to play with rhyme quite so effectively. The words flow beautifully, making his poetry and books an absolute pleasure to read out loud.

There is a lot of opportunity to use the text in this book for role play with children, getting them to act out the different family members and characters, so an ideal book to use in schools, particularly for the traditional tales topic.’
