‘The perfect read for Hallowe’en!’ Chrikaru Reads thrills to the quirky, dark humour in Buttercup Sunshine!

Chrikaru Reads, a book review blog by reading teacher Christina, recently enjoyed some giggles and chills with new junior fiction title Buttercup Sunshine and the Zombies of Dooooom by Colin Mulhern:

This is the perfect read for Hallowe’en!

What I liked: The relationship between Buttercup and her grandmother, a granny as a kick-ass main character, the quirky humour, the illustrations which really add to your enjoyment of the text.

Even better if: Perfect just as it is!

How you could use it in your classroom: This would be a good recommendation for any fans of Roald Dahl, David Walliams or Andy Stanton (Mr Gum) due to the quirky, dark humour. It is also a very accessible text because of the spacing between the text and the illustrations so this might be a good recommendation for any reluctant readers or those lacking in confidence.’

Thanks, Christina!
