Goodreads Review

Harry Saves The Ocean: Teaching children about sea pollution and recycling. (Harry The Happy Mouse Book 5)Harry Saves The Ocean: Teaching children about sea pollution and recycling. by N.G. K.

My rating 4 paws plus

Another A~MAZ~ING bright colourful rhyming read for children, featuring our favourite character Harry the Happy Mouse. We absolutely love this book series. However, this book is truly special bringing to light the problem of plastics in our oceans and along the coastlines. The opening lines simply entice you in as if swept along on a gentle sea breeze.

On the crest of a wave and the wisp of the wind,
Harry the Happy Mouse was packing his things.

The illustrations by Janelle Dimmett are as bright and beautiful as ever. Children of all ages are going to love this wonderful educational read.

Very Highly Recommended.

Children’s Book ‘This is a Dog’

Red Reading Hub - Jillrbennett's Reviews of Children's Books

This is a Dog
Ross Collins
Nosy Crow

There’s no getting away from it, Ross Collins’ intended My First Animal Book’ has been infiltrated, indeed taken over, by a mischievous canine that has no intention of doing anything but ensuring he’s the only animal that matters herein. He’s even had the audacity to substitute his name for Ross’s on the title page.

Make no bones about it, his actions are anything but well received by the other animals – note their expressions. And having annoyed the monkey, astonished the rabbit and alarmed the squirrel, he’s somehow managed to get his paws on a black crayon to edit (actually mess around with) the text.

Children will absolutely love what he does beside the giraffe and giggle at his attempts at emulating a pachyderm in front of the elephant.

He almost gets his cum uppance with bear but then comes gorilla where…

Young Ebenezer Hallowen Teaser Part 01

 I bring you a treat,
a Halloween story
of young Ebenezer
and best friend, young Rory.
I watch over the boys
I am Grandfather Time,
and I will tell you this tale
in rhythm and rhyme.

Small spacer

It is All Hallows Eve
and the kids in the schools
are really excited
to go home, dress as ghouls.
There’ll be vampires and ghosts
and monsters galore,
stepping out on the streets
to knock on your door.

Small spacer

The school bell rings loud
it is the end of the day.
The kids pack up their books,
and are soon on their way.
With his best friend in tow
Eb leaves the school yard,
they run all the way home
with their legs pumping hard.

Small spacer

With their homes now in sight,
the boys sprint to their gates
Rory punches the air
tells Eb “Don’t you be late.”
“I won’t. That’s a promise.”
Eb yells with a smile,
a little bit breathless
after running that mile.

Small spacer

Boing, Boing I chime out,
as Eb reaches our door.
Boing, Boing once again,
as my hands now reach four.
The house it smells yummy,
Mum has made a great feast
and like the Grinch on the film
Dad will carve the roast beast.

Small spacer

School bag and blazer
are thrown without care,
and land in a heap
at the base of the stair.
“Go back. Pick them up.”
is dads’ strict command.
“Or there’ll be no treats,
with neither plea nor demand.”

Small spacer

Eb does as he’s told
so he won’t miss the treats
or his first Halloween,
out with mates on the streets.
Dinner is rushed,
and fills up his tummy.
There is still room for sweets,
and all things that are yummy.

Small spacer

Young Ebenezer – Confronts the School Bully

First of all Happy Weekend Book Lovers, sorry we have not been around for a while would you believe we are actually writing. It’s true, I kid you not. So during #CampNaNoWriMo we worked on our poetry book Butterflies & Blue Skies ~ Poetry & Prose 2′ but we got off course and picked up on our #Selkie Folklore story.

Today however, we went off on a completely different tangent, but it was very productive. We actually completed the second book in the Young Ebenezer series. This time Young Ebenezer gets to go ‘Trick or Treating’ for the very first time. Sadly Jacob Marley the school bully is out stealing all the candy from the other boys and girls.

With the help of Grandfather Time and Miss Ruby Heart (me of course) we hope to get Jacob to change his ways.

Another new #WIP work in progress from Rose English if you like poetry and nature then these collections are worth checking out.

Rose English UK

Day 05 Camp NaNoWriMo

So I thought I would share with you part of my reason for doing the Camp NaNoWriMo Challenge. It is to create some original prose to go with the poetry I did during my NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) Challenge earlier in the year. I absolutely LOVE the cover by JC CLarke.

Butterflies & Blue Skies Front

Butterflies & Blue Skies ~ Poetry & Prose 2

Synopsis:

Collection of Poetry & Prose, a sequel to ‘Rainbows and Roses’ which is a delightful selection of whimsical short stories, along with a collection of poetry inspired by memories from childhood, the environment, together with a little bit of fun.

In this second volume I am hoping to feature some information on flowers and plants loved by Butterflies and Bees.

Many of the poems that will feature were written during the 2019 NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month)

Excerpt:
