The Antics Of Mrs Paws by Christine Gregory is a wonderful collection of six stories for the under fives, about a delightful bear called Mrs Paws.
The book fires up the imagination of both children and adults, who are reading it, alike. Mrs Paws is brought to life under the masterful pan of the author.
All the stories are warm and welcoming, about everyday things that are easy to imagine – going on holiday, baking etc. They are told in the third person as the reader is drawn into the tale.
The book is beautifully illustrated. Mrs Paws is delightfully round and just crying out to be loved and hugged by all.
I think the Mrs Paws tales would translate perfectly into a Pixar series for the young, and not so young, children. I would love to see merchandise too – who wouldn’t want a lovely Mrs Paws to cuddle?
This book would be a welcome addition to any child’s bookcase.
I received a free copy from the publishers. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
