Today marks the start of The Big Butterfly Count here in the U.K.! It runs until August the 12th and was originally launched back in 2010. This project aims to help assess the health of our environment and has rapidly become the world’s biggest survey of butterflies!

Keeping with a butterfly theme, I was very fortunate to receive a wonderful review for ‘Fearne Fairy And The Chocolate Caterpillar’, my 9th exciting instalment from the enchanting ‘Whimsy Wood’ children’s series! Here’s a snippet of what Abbie at ‘Bloomin’ Brilliant Books’ thought:-
“….I loved the way this book is written. Hill’s use of alliteration gives the story a rhythm and makes it immediately engaging to the reader. The use of this technique within the character’s names makes them easy for children to remember. Brilliantly written for young readers, I can imagine that any child would be easily captivated by the story.
It also has a conversational tone in places making it an ideal book to read aloud to your child. The use of phrases such as ‘splish, splash, splosh’ encourage young, new readers to get involved in the story and I can imagine children saying these phrases loudly. ‘Fearne Fairy And The Chocolate Caterpillar’ is the perfect length to keep young minds focused. …..”
As you can imagine I was absolutely delighted to receive such a fantastic review! Thank you very much Abbie at ‘Bloomin Brilliant Books’! On that cheery note I shall bid you farewell and wish you a wonderfully whimsical weekend!
