The Snapdragon does something very impish and rude at the beginning of this picture book. He swoops down, bites off the 'k' from the word book, and then takes away the lower part of the letter 'B', leaving behind the word 'Poo'. I can't wait to read this picture book to a group of 5/6 year olds, but I know just as surely as Mick Inkpen obviously does that that opening is going to have them squealing with glee. They won't laugh quite as loudly on any other page in the but the story of how Bookmouse manages to retrieve the missing parts of the word 'Book' is entertaining enough, and Snapdragon as illustrated by Inkpen is a very endearing rogue.
