I Don't Like Books. Never. Ever. The End.

I Don't Like Books. Never. Ever. The End.

Emma Perry, illus Sharon Davey
David Fickling Books
ISBN: 9781788450614

This is a charming, funny and imaginative picture book by Emma Perry with beautifully detailed illustrations by Sharon Davey. Mabel hates reading and hates people giving her book presents; she uses books as plates and sledges but never, ever reads one. Until one day, the unread books finally object and protest and soon Mabel is carried away right into the pages and stories themselves.

I read this in school with two groups of KS2 pupils and they all loved it. They thoroughly enjoyed indulging in the shock reaction to Mabel's misuse of books and liked predicting what the next book she might fall into would be. They think it's going to be a much loved book, especially in KS1, where it's off to next!

Picture book / Ages 4+ / Reviewed by Jenny Caddick, HLTA
