    Our sons, aged 5 and 7, just love this book and so do we. It is really funny and the reading is brilliant, it is easy to follow which character is which. You also pick up a few animal facts along they way.

    Pim is a baby aardvark, with a long, furry nose. He has tiny little claws instead of fingers and toes, and sleeps in a cosy burrow. But he isn't sure what being an aardvark really means. He asks his mother all sorts of questions, and she decides it is time he found out what being an aardvark is all about. In his quest to discover the world around him, he meets lots of exotic and interesting animals. There are snakes, cheetahs, elephants, and monkeys, and they all have something to teach him.

  • "Brilliant"

    Overall

    My 5 and 6 yr old sons just love all Jill Tomlinsons books, but this one in particular. The story is great, really funny and full of animal facts. Maureen Lipman's reading is just brilliant, how she can keep so many voices straight in her head I just don't know. But it makes the story really easy to follow. Highly recommend.

    Otto isn't an ordinary penguin: he is the first penguin chick to be born that year, which means that it is his job to look after all the other young penguins. But out in the snow and ice of Antarctica there is an awful lot to learn, and Otto has to discover for himself how to swim, dive, and catch fish before he can teach anyone else. And how will he do that when all the grown-ups are too busy to help?

  • "Surprisingly engaging"

    Overall

    This lovely tale of growing up in a small Scandinavian village held the attention of my 5 and 6 yr old sons for the whole 2 hours+. I was surprised.



    But beware, the little girl narrator does pretty much say "I used to think Santa was real but now I know that it is just the parents pretending" so be prepared to cough loudly during that part of the 'Christmas' chapter if your children are still believers.

    Look, I didn't want to be a half-blood. I never asked to be the son of a Greek God. I was just a normal kid, going to school, playing basketball, skateboarding. The usual. Until I accidentally vaporized my maths teacher. That's when things started really going wrong. Now I spend my time fighting with swords, battling monsters with my friends, and generally trying to stay alive. This is the one where Zeus, God of the Sky, thinks I've stolen his lightning bolt - and making Zeus angry is a very bad idea.

The conversation inspires the storyteller to complete his own version of the story. The result should bring a smile.
