Tabitha Posy was ever so nosy! by Julie Fulton
Tabitha Posy is ever so nosy and annoys all her neighbours by sticking her nose into their business. However one day on a school trip to the zoo, she discovers there are just some times when it is better not to be too curious with oversized cats!
This is the second picture book by Julie Fulton, whose first book Mrs MacCready was ever so greedy has been reviewed on this blog too.
I really enjoy Julie Fulton's books. They are written in rhyme and are great for children with wild imagination. The books are humorous and will appeal to both young children and the adults who read it to them. With the catchy text it will soon be recited from memory and become a firm favourite at story time.
The illustrations by Jona Jung are also fantastic - they accompany the text perfectly and will be the source of much discussion with young children with pictures being hand drawn but full of detail.
There is a great moral to the story - use books for research and reference! This is one which I can try to urge my children to remember but with the age of the Internet one which is being forgotten.
I would recommend this as a great book for children and I am sure it is one which will become a firm favourite at story time.
Thank you to the publishers, Maverick Books, for sending me the book to review.
