‘The reaction from the children was amazing’ Fantastic review from Booklover Jo for Fum!

When Booklover Jo took Fum by Karl Newson and illustrated by Lucy Fleming to the school library ….

‘The reaction from the children was amazing, they took huge delight in shouting out where ‘Fum’ was hiding,  believing me when I said that, just like the Crumb family I couldn’t see him anywhere. I have never heard so much noise and laughter in the library it was a real joy to see. The rambunctious rhymes made it delightful to read and gave me a fantastic opportunity to put my storytelling skills to the test. Lucy’s vibrant and colourful illustrations are filled with the most glorious details offering children the chance to pour over the pages to discover all the different fairy-tale stories within the book. This book would be perfect to use in school within an early years setting as an introduction to fairy-tales, acting as a fantastic spark. Warm and witty, this proves to be an irresistible combination of a lively and fun story filled with the most splendid illustrations.’


Thanks Jo!
