Stunt Bunny Medal Mayhem by Tamsyn Murray

Medal Mayhem - Stunt Bunny

Harriet Houdini is going for gold in the London Animalympics! Hearing that Superpets is going to be part of an international Olympics for animals, Harriet fancies her chances at bringing home some medals. She goes into training with a world famous athlete and brings a whole new meaning to the hop-skip-and-jump of the triple jump. But not everyone wants to see Harriet win, least of all The Great Maldini, and she has to take some unconventional transport to make to the Animalympics final.

Another great book for children in the build up to the Olympics! Harriet Houdini is back and she is going for gold. The Team Superpets are invited to compete to represent England in The Animalympics, when each team member will be provided with a professional athlete to coach them in their specialist event for the Animalympics. Harriet Houdini decides to compete in the triple jump and soon makes it into the England team where she is paired with Calvin Cross, medal winning triple jumper.  Of course there are people trying to prevent Harriet from the competition but will they succeed?

This is another brilliantly written book by Tamsyn Murray featuring the adorable Harriet Houdini. It is timed perfectly for The Olympics and will be great to get children interested in the games. There are fantastic illustrations throughout the book by Lee Wildish, which accompany the story perfectly.

This book is aimed at children aged five years plus - this is a book which would have to be read to children aged five plus but they would enjoy the story, the chapters are perfect length for bedtime stories. It would be great for children who are beginning to read independently.

I would recommend this book to fans of Stunt Bunny or to anyone wanting to get into the Olympic spirit early.

Thank you to the author and Simon and Schuster kids for sending me the book to review.
