The Letterpress Project on Don’t Eat Pete!: ‘I predict that this will be a huge hit with young children’

Karen at The Letterpress Project has recently enjoyed new picture book Don’t Eat Pete! by Sue Walker:

Trolls often get a negative role to play in children’s stories so it is refreshing to see a new gloriously illustrated picture book with simple rhyming text that gives a different perspective and puts an everyday troll family centre stage. 

This laugh out loud picture book is generously packed with detailed and colourful illustrations throughout. The central characters are very likeable with a range of facial expressions drawn to convey their various dilemmas. There is also lots of delicious looking food to look at and talk about as well as the chance for children to hook onto the refrain because they sort of know that Uncle Boll is going to need plenty of reminders. I predict that this will be a huge hit with young children.’

Thanks, Karen! Read the whole review here and buy a copy here
