Get Ahead Fred: BookBag Review

fred“Get Ahead Fred has a lot of nice touches. I particularly enjoyed seeing through Fred’s hat collection – it felt like a headwear version of Monty Python’s Cheese Shop sketch…

…In a change from most picture books, the illustrations are models which have been photographed. These models are packed with character, have a familiar style that will immediately click with children, and set the mood wonderfully. The style is mostly seen with the sort of TV tie-in book that we tend to shy away from, but it’s super with an original story. The quality bodes really well for future books from Daisy Dawes.”
