B is for Bookworm
Book-loving mama who believes you're never too old for magical stories of talking animals and imaginary worlds.
6.0 / 7.0

I’m a big fan of Alison Jay’s illustrations, and Curtis’ text is fabulous. Such an imaginative, whimsical, and quaint story filled to the brim with lovely details, making it perfect for a shorter, lyrical read or an in-depth look at each feature included on each page.

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.0 / 7.0

The text in this book is lullaby-esque and perfectly complements Jay’s crackled illustrations that seamlessly combine classic and whimsy. The text has just a touch of nonsense that adds to the dream-like quality and my only issue with this book is that it’s oversize… so much bigger and heavier than it needs to be.
