Irish Times Picturebook Review

From The Irish Times Weekend 1st Aug 2010
Picturebook review here.

Bob Graham’s utterly enchanting April Underhill, Tooth Fairy (Walker £11.99) is the story of a seven-year-old tooth fairy who goes on her first mission with her little sister.

Speckle the Spider (Walker , £10.99). Speckle is a spider who loves to dance and heads off in a crate of bananas to see the world.

Mary’s Penny (Walker, £11.99), written by Tanya Landman and illustrated by Richard Holland. It’s the story of a clever peasant girl who proves that she’s a better choice to run the family farm than her dozy brothers. That sounds a bit worthy, but Holland’s warm illustrations and Landman’s lively text make for an appealing book.
