About this deal

To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Smith is an English author and illustrator of children's books, including Primrose, Egg, Ella, and the Claude book series. You guys are such a force for good and I am a passionate supporter of Indie booksellers, so I'm so happy this worked out well (I'd love to know how many books were sold if you have it to hand - it felt like quite a lot!

Booklist "Smith keeps the story zipping along, effectively using repeating phrases, story elements, and scenarios.This appealing spin on the classic fairy-tale by bestselling illustrator Alex T Smith is set against a vibrantly coloured African landscape. Bronnie is so lovely with the boys and we also felt that having a man enthusing about the books set a great example. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. I haven't charted out my visits for the summer term, but I'm sure there are several in the south) and thanks so much for being so fantastic!

Smith * "Great storytelling braided with lively color and a culturally affirming accent makes this book a real standout. Written in witty verse and accompanied by colourful illustrations, this wonderful contemporary tale is great to read aloud and ideal to show young children that stories have the power to take readers on all sorts of exciting, imaginative journeys. Your words, like your reviews, bring books to life and give them a voice before the front cover is even turned. Rather than conquering him, she tames him instead (after doing his hair and teeth and changing his clothes), and on the last page she is silhouetted playing skipping with the lion, her father and her poorly aunt (replacing the grandmother).I have even talked the head into a little revamp of the library so that we can display them properly! Set somewhere in Africa, Auntie wakes up one day with spots, and Little Red is tasked to bring her some medicine and doughnuts to make her feel better. It’s fun, subversive, and inspiring, showing children how to twist a tale, and use imagination to recreate old classics.

It was such a pleasure to meet you both, and I really appreciated how smoothly and professionally you ran everything. She walks under the giraffes, over the sleepy crocodiles, past the enormous elephants, and by the chattering monkeys.

Little Red and the Very Hungry Lion is a cute retelling of an old and popular folktale, with a smart and fearless main character who teaches a lion a thing or two about manners. She walks under the giraffes, over the sleepy crocodiles, past the enormous elephants and the chattering monkeys. Your selection was perfect for our children and what really made the difference was your ability to engage with each child, discuss their interests and help them to choose a suitable book based on your extensive knowledge of the books you were selling. Alex T Smith has had great fun depicting both Little Red’s jaunt through the jungle to reach her aunt, but also the lion’s descent into grumpiness as his plan fails and Little Red gets carried away doing his hair! You can change your choices at any time by visiting Cookie preferences, as described in the Cookie notice.

But despite all the cunning plans by Lion, Little Red outsmarts him and soon has him saying sorry and eating doughnuts instead.School library borrowers grappled to take this choice every week, and requested repeated readings and showings of the rib-tickling, spot-itching picture book.
