Mr P's Naughty Book by Francesca Simon
AARDVARK: shouts at BAKED BEANS: drops on cat KETCHUP: decorates mother with Mr Punishment has the perfect punishment for every naughtiness in the world and every day his telephone rings with parents desperate for his advice. But Mr Punishment never seems to get it quite right - with chaotic results!
Francesca Simon is best known for her very popular Horrid Henry series, however she also has a number of other books out, which are also great reads for children of all ages. This is one such book.
The book is about Mr Punishment who writes his own book on punishments for parents to use on their children, however his ideas are little confused!
Children will enjoy this book. It is full of humour and the laughter will be heard when reading this book.
The story is great, but the illustrations are just as good - they capture the story perfectly and add that little extra to the book. The illustration of Mr Punishment is very similar to that of a mad scientist - and is just as I imagined him while reading the book.
Orion Kids have a great range of Early Reader books which are suitable for children who are beginning to gain confidence in their own reading ability and are enjoying reading books rather than picture book style books.
This book is a perfect book to give to any child who is beginning to read books themselves, but is also perfect as a story to share with a group of children at story time.
Thank you to the publishers, Orion Kids, for sending me the book to review.
