Bizzy Bear Spooky House
Nosy Crow, 2016
10pp., board book., RRP $A9.99
“The ever-intrepid Bizzy Bear has come for a visit to a super-spooky Halloween house. As he climbs the rickety stairs and walks the cobwebby corridors, all sorts of creepy characters appear from doors and hidey holes. Bizzy, naturally, remains undaunted – but where could he be going and what will he find there?”
This is a delightful board book perfect for the very young who will enjoy the rhyming text and the interactivity of the things to discover on the pages. Discovering what’s hiding behind the chair, who’s behind the door and predicting why they are all getting together will delight them for ages. Although there is little text, there is great detail in the colourful illustrations which will enrich and enhance the child’s vocabulary as they make their collection of spooky things.
I predict it will become a favourite as they will be able to tell themselves the story very easily.
