Tommy Twigtree and his friends enjoy peace and harmony in their garden.
That is until Robbie Rabbit and his Bandits decide that carrots are on the menu!
Tommy Twigtree and the Carrot Crunchers is the first book for children by Michael Firman.
Illustrations are by Nick Roberts.
This book has some adorable illustrations and it is them that really make this book so enjoyable. This is a cute story about friendship and cooperation in a garden setting which is one most children will be able to understand and imagine.
I read the book with my daughter and she loved the images even if she didn’t really understand that plot as it is a bit over her age range but it is definitely a book I will be reading to her again when she is older. I thought the story was enjoyable.
3.5 stars from me for this one, rounded up to 4 stars for Goodreads and Amazon!
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Michael lives in rural Sussex with his wife. His story telling started when his eldest grandchild was old enough to appreciate a bedtime tale. Rather than read to her he began to craft stories about the trees, plants and animals that live in his garden. As time passed and a second grandchild also enjoyed these tales of adventure and daring, the stories began to create a whole world that lived and went about its business right in his garden.
His grand kids, Poppy and Rudi continue to enjoy further developments in the lives of the characters that populate these stories and Tommy Twigtree and The Carrot Crunchers is the first in a series charming garden tales.
