Juicy the Peach and the popcorn palaver

By Anna Theed

Illustrated by Antony Elworthy

Beeswax Books

ISBN 9780473323967


In rhyming text with bright illustrations this debut picture book by author Anna Theed is sure to put smiles on the faces of young readers or listeners. Actually a couple of  10 year old boys on library duty today picked up our copy of this book and giggled their way through Juicy’s antics especially her bad case of flatulence. I also had a class of 5 and 6 year old children who laughed through the book. The sound of children’s laughter is a wonderful thing.

A glittery hardback picture book with quirky characters. Love the big wide eyes on the children’s faces.

There is chaos as Juicy takes care of two children for a day. And that chaos involves plenty of popcorn, in fact so much popcorn that it “popped out the door, down the path to the gate.”  What do you do with so much popcorn? Well, you read the book to find out.  If you want to have a wee peek inside then click here
