The Great Snortle Hunt

I received this as an ARC from the publisher.By: Claire Freedman

Illustrated By: Kate Hindley

One night Mouse convinces Cat and Dog to go with him up to the scary-creepy house that is on the bumpy-steepy hill. They are on a Snortle hunt. It is dark and creepy and a little bit scary as they make it to the house, and then inside. They climb up the stairs looking for the Snortle but what will they do if they actually find one? More to the point what will the Snortle do to them?

This is a wonderful, spooky little tale about rumours, adventures and courage. Claire Freedman is the author of the Aliens Love Underpants series and brings her wonderful sense of fun (though it is more subtle than the Underpants books) to a new set of characters. The text is simple and rhymes, which children love, and the quantity of text makes it great for younger listeners. Hindley’s illustrations are quirky and expressive. A great book that really isn’t all that scary, especially when you get to the Snortle. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.
