The Sheep Won’t Sleep

by Curtis Jobling & Tom McLaughlin

We are big fans of sheep, and if you were to visit our home you would find sheep everywhere. There are coasters and cups with sheep, tea-towels sporting sheep. We have several toy sheep and even a noughts and crosses sheepy game. So there really was no doubt that we would love this beautiful and engrossing picture book. Check out the Miss Ruby Heart review on YouTube.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

 

We love all things sheepy so we could not help but fall in love with this wonderful story. It is all about a sleepy sheep dog who has to put one hundred naughty sheep to bed but…


The Sheep Won’t Sleep

This phrase is used throughout the book encouraging little ones to join in the reading. It is a fun, bright, colourful rhyming read.

No-Bot, the Robot with No BottomNo-Bot, the Robot with No Bottom by Sue Hendra

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is s bright, fun silly story about Bernard the robot who loses his bottom whilst in the park. Young readers will enjoy flicking through the pages and trying to find the bottom that is used for many different things. It is even used down on the beach.

It’s a story of friendship and how everyone comes together to try and help Bernard find his bottom.

A real laugh out loud story.

Miss Ruby Heart’s Review Scores

Our Book Review, Scoring System.

Dogs only have four paws, so we use a paw scoring system to rate the books that we read. The books that we find to be A~MAZ~ING we will also give them a lick. It is our way of giving an extra kiss if you like. Therefore our very top rated books receive four paws and a lick (5*****)

Here is the rating system explained.

4 paws plus

  Four Paws & a lick is the highest grading like 5*

These books are A~MAZ~ING,  real page-turners.

We absolutely love these books and will read them usually more than once.

4 paws

Four Paws = really liked it

3 paws

Three Paws = liked it

2 paws

Two Paws = OK

1 paw

One Paw = Just not for us

Rarely will you see us give a one paw rating. But it does happen now and again. We hope this helps you understand how we review our books. Thanks for dropping by. Don’t forget to tell your book lover friends and pop back soon to see more reviews for children’s books.

Sample Book Review ‘The Island Dog Squad’

An example of our Book Review’s

Hello, we have been having so much fun playing with our little Talking Pet App that we  decided to share our first trial mini review. We would love to hear your views good or bad. Simply drop us a comment below.

YouTube Review

‘The Island Dog Squad’ by Deb McEwan

This is a wonderful book by the very talented Deb McEwan. Take a peek at our mini video review.

The Island Dog Squad was Book 25

in our 2018 Goodreads Challenge

This is a story for dog lovers both young and old. But be warned as well as it being comical, at times it is also rather heart-wrenching too. Probably advisable for readers 10+

The author’s own dog Sandy is a rescued dog, and the inspiration behind the book. The tale is told from the dog’s point of view.

After almost drowning as a pup, Sandy is initially rescued by military personnel. She proves to be a very intelligent little dog and undergoes training on the base. Sadly the poor dog ends up having some horrendous experiences. Sandy ends up on the streets almost at deaths door; she has no memory of who she is or where she came from.

Luckily Sandy is found and taken to a rescue shelter, and from there she is adopted by Ellie and Ben. She loves her people parents and just wants to settle into a new life with them. However, she begins to suffer nightmares and slowly her memories begin to return but they are not pleasant.

I love how the author interweaves mystery and intrigue into a captivating tale, along with a dog’s eye view of the world. Sandy’s thoughts on her people parents are simply adorable, particularly when she begins to learn more about them. Here is just one of her thoughts:-

‘I was to discover Ellie was a vegivore and a chocivore.’

Such great fun and very highly recommended.

As a special treat I recommend you visit Deb’s website and check out the real Sandy’s Dog Blog. Click HERE

It is so simple to use (well we used it OK) Take a photo or choose from your photo gallery, then speak into the microphone to see your pet realistically speak back to you. Why not check it out. Have Fun.
