Rollo and Ruff and the fluffy little bird by Mick Inkpen
There are footprints all over the corner shop yard. And something has been nibbling Rollo's little red ball. Could the stinky little creature fast asleep in the little fluffy bird's nest have something to do with it? A story of friendship between very different animals, made even stronger with a trail of sweeties from the Cornershop...
Two, no three, new characters created by Mick Inkpen, the creator of Kipper. Rollo is a cat, Ruff is a rat and there is also LFB, Little Fluffy Bird. The story is classic Inkpen, full of great characters, great story and one which every young child will love. The story is about friendship and helping others, however smelly they may be!
The pages are filled with adorable characters and the words in a clear typeface and which sometimes become part of the picture on the page. In true Inkpen style this is a book which you will read again and again with children and I am sure that this will become another firm favorite with children everywhere.
Thank you to Hodder Children's Books for sending me the book to review.
