Review: Mummy's Little Sunflowers by Angela McAllister and Alison Edgson
Publisher: Little Tiger Press
Format: Large paperback / hardcover
Released: February 3rd, 2015
Scurry loves sunflowers. He's got one special seed that he's going to grow just for his mummy. But his little brother, Scamp, loves sunflowers seeds, and when he eats his brother's special seed, he's in real trouble.
Anytime a new picture book arrives featuring illustrations by Alison Edgson I get excited and have to read it straight away. She's my all-time favourite picture book illustrator - her art is always so lovely and her characters so cute that it makes for a wonderful reading experience. Mummy's Little Sunflowers is the latest of these books to hit my post box and it's as brilliant as I was expecting it to be!
Angela McAllister has penned this story about two little mice, Scurry and Scamp, who want to give their mummy a nice funflower (that's a sunflower to me and you). Scamp eats the only seed meaning the two nice have to go searching for more, which leads them to have a big adventure or two. The characters are memorable, the story is heartwarming and it really shows the bond between families - just lovely!
Mummy's Little Sunflowers is one of the best picture books I've read so far this year and is one I'm sure I'll read again and again. The illustrations are all amazing - they're bright and eye-catching - and the story itself is one that will appeal to lots of tiny funflower enthusiasts. This one is a must-read for picture book fans!
