Choosing Crumble by Michael Rosen
Published by Andersen, 2014
Five year old Terri-Lee goes for an interview to find
out if she’s responsible enough to own a dog but when she reaches
the pet-shop she doesn’t expect the dog to be interviewing her!
Crumble has lots of questions to ask and boxes to tick: e.g.
How many walks will you take me on?
Do you like to dance?
Will you tickle me? I like that a lot.
Will Terri-Lee’s dance moves and answers be enough to convince Crumble
that she could be his owner?
Written by Michael Rosen and illustrated by Tony Ross it is no surprise
that this simple story in which words and pictures compliment each other
perfectly is so entertaining and engaging.
Choosing Crumble is an amusing yet informative book for newly emerging
readers up to eight years of age. It’s a good story with plenty
of suspense which makes them turn page after page towards developing a
love of reading.
