Review: Happy Hoppy Home

Happy Hoppy Home is an adorable story about a family of rabbits who go on a journey to find the right place to live, and who discover what home means along the way.

Papa Hare and his four children all live together in a cramped little burrow. There is no room for the bunny children (Dot, Pip and Pap, and Baby Cottontail) to play and dance and rest. So Papa Hare comes up with a brilliant plan – they will move to a bigger burrow! They dig up and down and sideways, but they can’t find anything that is big enough for them. Until finally, they find somewhere that seems just perfect, but does it really suit them?

Happy Hoppy Home is a gorgeous humbling book about home and family. It is easy to read and the illustrations are so sweet, I particularly like the different characters and how every page feels like you’re peeking into a burrow itself. The bunny illustrations are adorable and have so much character. A straightforward story, that is told with enough charm to be very enjoyable, and features an important lesson that all kids and adults need to remember – home is wherever your family are.

Picture Book Review: Winner Winner Bin Chicken Dinner

Everyone is familiar with the dreaded bin chicken. They do have quite the reputation these days, the poor ibis. This sequel to the popular “Bin Chicken” book by the same authors, gives us some more insight into the ibis’ life and this poor ibis is not let off the hook looking for a meal.

In a dirty old town, on a busy old street, struts a fine-feathered bird with leathery feet.

This book is a fun easy to read story about an ibis looking for some dinner. The poor ibis tries all kinds of places from French restaurants to fish and chips. The rhyming is perfect and great to read out loud, making it fun for all ages. I felt a little bad for the bin chicken whose relentless attempts to secure some food continue to get muddled. But the end is sweet and funny.

Winner Winner, Bin Chicken Dinner is a clever and enjoyable book that features themes of friendship and how we treat others. The illustrations are fantastic in great colours and my favourite are the ones of the seagulls acting tough and flexing their muscles.
