I have a fantastic opportunity for you to win one of five signed copies of the new Whimsy Wood book which is due for release at the end of June.
A little about the book series
The Whimsy Wood collection, written by Sarah Hill, is a series for 5-8 yr olds and consists of 35 books. These are divided into 5 sets, each containing 7 books. Every book is written for a specific month in the calendar so the flora and fauna change as you read through the series. There is a proverb tucked away within each story giving the books real meaning and finally 10% of book sales are donated to The Wildlife Trusts UK.
The first Whimsy Wood book, ‘Posie Pixie And The Copper Kettle’, was published in July 2013 and book 7, ‘Posie Pixie And The Pancakes’ will be launched at the end of June.
I’ve had a sneak preview of the new book and I know that if I was a 5-8 year old, I would love it in my collection. The illustrations by Sarah Mauchline are absolutely stunning and really make the book come to life. The characters feature every child’s favourite woodland creatures and the story always has a purpose to teach the reader – in this one, it’s don’t eat until you make yourself feel sick – something I am completely guilty of!
