...An ideal book for parent's to read to their children as a bedtime story....

An strange inventor lives all a lonely life by himself on an island. The rest of the island has left because of all the noises he made while inventing. One day, he finds a book washed up on the beach describing a zoo and he resolves to make the animals from the bits of scrap that have washed ashore. But having made them, they are still inanimate objects, and the inventor is still lonely. But that night, lightning strikes the house, bringing his animals to life.

This is an enjoyable short children’s story that would be ideal for anyone of a young age, certainly as a bedtime read. The story is good fun and the characters are simple enough to understand. The younger readers will more than likely enjoy making the loud noises along with the story. The story is beautifully pictures with pencil illustrations, each of which neatly enhances the story ideological it. I didn’t see any spelling or grammar errors, although this will not matter to younger readers.

Overall, it’s an ideal book for parent’s to read to their children as a bedtime story.

  • Max, the boy who didn't believe in Santa Claus
    Five stars for this lovely Christmas tale with a laugh-out-loud - and heartwarming - ending. Good for those that believe in Santa and those that don't - and the parents will like it too!
  • Chumbalina The Plump Princess
    A short story with a princess who saves the day, makes new friends and becomes the toast of the kingdom? With gorgeous pictures? There are little girls out there who will adore this, especially since she doesn't change who she is to do it.
  • Indigo's hair story
    a lovely little story about Indigo adapting to losing her hair with the love and support of her family, pitched at a perfect level for children.

My 4 of my 5 grandchildren are already grown except Sophie who is 7 years old. She loves to listen to a story read to her especially during sleeping time. I'm sure she will be asking what are those animals that inventor created and become alive. This indeed ideal for kids and adults too I think.

The story is not interesting enough to capture the attention of the reader.
