According to a countdown in town today, theres 49 sleeps until Santa comes to town, although for the engines of Vroom-Town, Santa seems to be heading their way much sooner!
I was so excited to have been asked to take part in the little tour for this fabulous childrens book, thanks so much to Linda from BooksOfAllKinds for asking me, and thank you to the author for sending me a copy of the book! Here is my review:
What does TWG think?
Even though my little girl, Eva, can now read independently, she asked me if I would read Vroom-Town to her, and of course I obliged! In all honesty, I think I was more excited than her because I just LOVED the look of the cover!
I hadn’t come across these books before, yet I was able to get to know the engines very quickly and easily, although there were a couple who certainly deserved to go on the naughty list this year!
It was a genius idea to turn a garage into a festive read, and the addition of Santa’s sleigh had my daughter very excited. She did notice the two engines, Terry and Bullydozer, who weren’t very nice and the fact that she was aware of it, just goes to show that the author cleverly incorporated the topic of bullying into her story in a way that children would be able to understand. Not only that, my daughter ended up talking about the ‘bad guys’ of the book even after we had finished reading it, because she knew that it wasnt nice to have done what they did. Like I say, cleverly written in the book, I’m very impressed.
Overall i loved the bright colours, the easy to understand storyline, and the festive cheer it delivered when it sprinkled its magic dust over us both. I thoroughly enjoyed it! My daughter did too, so much so she has even asked for all the other books for Christmas!
This was a lovely read, one that I would definitely recommend.
