Children's Picture Books Round Up
And finally - a link to my round up of children's picture books for the Telegraph's summer reading special. I love Joel Stewart - his marvellous book Tree Soup: A Stanley Wells Mystery came out a couple of years ago and is well worth a look. Here I'm reviewing his new book, Have You Ever Seen A Sneep?, written in conjunction with the illustrator Tasha Pym. Also under review are new books by Julia Donaldson and children's laureate Anthony Browne. My particular favourite was Dog Loves Books by Louisa Yates - a charming fable about reading. Reminded me rather of my childhood love of reading - I certainly wanted to set up my own bookshop. In fact it remains a fantasy.
