‘Great book to use in the classroom to initiate discussions about friendship’ Story Snug adores AdoraBULL!

Story Snug has posted a fabulous review for a fabulous new picture book, AdoraBULL by Alison Donald with illustrations by Alex Willmore:

Alex Willmore’s very amusing illustrations support the humour in the easy to read text – Alfred causes a lot of chaos in his attempts to look adorable! We absolutely love the pictures showing him using the farmer’s phone and his attempt to look cute on a swing makes us laugh. Our favourite illustration (and the most adorable!) is on the final page… (but we don’t want to spoil the ending for you!).

AdoraBULL is a great book to use in the classroom to initiate discussions about friendship and how children can feel when their best friend’s situation changes. It also shows that life changes don’t necessarily mean friendship changes, Alfred completely misunderstands Tom’s motives when he looks for a pet but Tom hasn’t stopped caring about his friend now he’s started school.

This is a fabulous first picture book for the littlest of readers who will be able to spot different farm animals while listening to the simple text being read aloud. There are lots of fun details in the pictures and, whatever he is doing, we think that Alfred is adorable!’

Thank you so much, Catherine!
