Badly Drawn Beth by Knife and Packer

A bit of fun today! Despite the title, Beth is not badly drawn and the book is full of lively cartoon illustrations- my favourite being Scribbles the mouse. 

In the style of 'Tom Gates', Beth is a very likeable heroine who has a very vivid imagination. Her family are wonderfully wacky - Granny's parrot is evil- but they are fun and loving too. 

 

Perfect for those who enjoy a light-hearted, fun read with plenty of illustrations, 'Badly Drawn Beth' is already a firm favourite in my classroom where we are looking forward to the next in the series!
