Since Aly started school in September her reading has come on so much it's unbelievable so when the chance came up to review come new children's books we jumped at the chance. Pale Henry by Calvin Innes
Pale Henry is a short story about a young boy that lives in his attic with just his pet cat and spiders and moths. The book is written in a rhyme style so it's easy for the children to follow along to without too much trouble.
Although this book may look thick at 58 or so pages a few are picture pages and often the pages have to more that 20 words on them. Aly at 5 knew most of the words but struggled on a few unusual words. The book is slightly off the beaten track of what she usually reads but she seemed to enjoy it and it make her laugh.
Pale Henry is available from MyLittleBigTown for £4.99
Jenny by Calvin Innes
Jenny is not your average girl, she's a werewolf hunting 8 year old. The words for this story were a little more advanced so it was one for use to read to Aly. She didn't enjoy this book as much as Pale Henry due to it being aimed at older children and she's never really heard of Werewolf's.
She still laughed at various parts of the story and said the werewolf looks like the Gruffalo and this made her laugh more.
Jenny is available from MyLittleBigTown for £4.99
Stuart the Bug Eating Man by Calvin Innes
The final book of the series is Stuart the Bug Eating Man. As the title suggests it's about a man who eats bugs.
This was Aly's favourite book of the series and again it is written in a rhyming style so makes it very easy to follow. The book is very well illustrated with various bug pictures to help tell the story for the younger children.
Stuart the Bug Eater is available from MyLittleBigTown for £4.99
