I love Sue Hendra's books. They all contain very fun and cute stories with beautiful illustrations. This book was one of my daughter's favourites and she still loves it. Barry is a fish with fingers and he puts it to good use to save his friend Puffy.


Why did I like this book? Fun storyline with beautiful and colourful illustrations.

Marmaduke- the Very Different Dragon

Marmaduke was a pleasant surprise! My daughter absolutely loved this book. Its a story about a dragon that is different to other dragons and because of this, no princess wants him as her dragon...or at least not  until he meets a "very different princess" who becomes his friend.

What did I like about this book?: This book teaches children to embrace their individuality, which in turn instils confidence. Its main message is that  Its OK to be different.
