Hidden away in Algy’s garden shed is another world. It’s a snowy Arctic place where anything can happen. And it does…
What’s not to love about this early reader. The names are funny and a tad cheeky. The pictures are inviting and happy. And the story is heart warming.
This book is a long way from the Ann and Barry books we had as children. I love hearing kids at their reading time when the stories are this good.
More of these books in school, please! I especially liked that this story had a little message in it. Perfect for early readers. I even tested it in school. I had planed to only read the first 10 chapters, but oh no…the kids demanded it all. And I can’t say that I blame them; I even wanted to know what happened to Brad.
Thanks to Orion for the review copy.
