We were sent the very funny Mrs MacCready was ever so greedy by Julie Fulton (Published in May 2011) to review. ISBN: 978-1-84886-065-0
Despite the boys having stacks of books between them we had yet to read one published by Maverick Children’s Books, which is nothing short of a travesty as they are very colourful and entertaining reads.
The book is written in rhyme, which is great as a change from what we normally read. It definitely sparked a lot of interest. The story involves the likeable Mrs MacCready who cannot stop eating… and eventually explodes! The dramatic end result got a burst of giggles from my two.
The story cleverly recommends eating in moderation and making sure you engage in exercise (“playing in the park”) in such a silly way, any child should enjoy this book, without realising they are learning valuable lessons.
Would definitely recommend adding to any child’s collection. If you have not had some Maverick magic on your bookshelf now is your chance! Keep checking back as we have three more reviews to follow from Maverick over the next few days.
Available from Amazon for a very reasonable £5.39 and from other good book shops.
You can find out more about Maverick’s books on their website and get a taste for what else they have available to read. On the strength of the books I was sent, I have just placed my first order for the book “Nice Bear, Naughty Bear: Book of Good Manners” – that should go some way to domesticating my two!
