A Perfect Addition
Chewie The Pup by Drew Antony Piercy is a delightfully charming book just perfect for young children.
It is written in rhyme enabling the simple story to bounce along. This also has the effect of making it easy for young children to join in and to anticipate what is coming next.
Chewie The Pup is perfect to read to the under fives and for early readers to read for themselves.
The book is beautifully illustrated by Toria Ashplant. Chewie and his siblings have big beautiful eyes which draw the reader in.
Chewie The Pup teaches empathy both with words and with the illustrations as the reader sees both sadness and joy reflected in Chewie’s eyes.
I loved Chewie The Pup. It makes perfect bedtime reading and would be a welcome addition to any young child’s personal library.
I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
