Munkle Arvur and the Bod

9781775430698By: Nikki Slade Robinson

Munkle Arvur lives in a famous canyon that was clean and great, it was a first rate tourist attraction. Munkle Arvur cared for the canyon, until one day the Bod paid a call and Munkle Arvur’s canyon becomes a dumping ground. Munkle will not stand for this and he sets out to do something about it.

A delightful tale of recycling and caring for the environment. The text is quirky, fun and very much in the style of a Dr Seuss book. The accompanying illustrations are wonderful, a little odd and just perfect for the tone of the text. A totally enjoyable book that will be fun to share.

Recommended.

Mind Your Gramma!

By: Yvonne Morrison and Nikki Slade Robinson

Gramma asks me about my day, and I say, ‘Me and my friend played soccer.’

She says ‘My friend and I played soccer.

I say ‘At your age?’

This excerpt is one of the easiest ways to describe this book. At it’s simplest it is a story of a young girl visiting her grandmother. Through the story Gramma corrects the child’s grammar and the child, in return, misunderstands everything.

This is a very funny little book that will appeal to young and old though probably on different levels. It may even do very well in a class room situation. The easy and fun text combined with the simple yet appealing illustrations, make this a wonderful way to introduce the idea of grammar to a young reader.
