Margaret Awarded The Preposterous Rhinoceros by Tracy Gunaratnam 5/5

It is a beautiful colourful book. Lovely pictures that illustrate the story very well. It is a very good quality book. The pages are not flimsy and would not tear from turning the pages while reading it. My son Paul was captivated with the animals in the book and it encouraged him to look at the pictures and ask me lots of questions. Beautifully illustrated with all of the animals relevant to the story. Paul enjoyed the story being read to him and then with the help of the pictures he read it to me also. Paul really enjoyed the story and the different animals. He loved the fact he could read the story himself to his baby brother. I felt it encouraged him to ask questions and also we discussed what happens when you cannot talk. I thought this was a beautiful book. A nice big size with lovely colourful pictures and it can lead to a lot of thoughtful discussions on how we can talk if we lose our voice. We could draw pictures, point etc. For the quality of this book I would happily pay £6.99. I would buy this as a present for a child. I would recommend as it is very good quality for the price and a very interesting storyline that would encourage children to ask lots of questions. Very good quality and very well illustrated book. Gives children plenty of opportunities to discuss different animals and what you could do if you lost your voice. Margaret Brenan – Paul 3 years

Kate Awarded The Preposterous Rhinoceros by Tracy Gunaratnam 4.4/5

Initial impression was that it was too detailed, and went on a bit. However, goes to show mum’s impressions don’t matter, as he loves it! Really liked the matt finish to the book looks good quality. My son liked it straight away, as about dinosaurs! My son loves the illustrations. He finds them very funny and picks out little details about the characters. He wanted this book for about 4/5 nights in a row for bedtime story from Daddy. He loves it, and regularly talks about the characters. Learnt new words too and keeps talking about ‘Salamander;’ this was very stimulating book for my son. Initial thoughts were that it was too detailed, and son would lose interest. However I was wrong. But this means I may not have bought it if I went on my first impressions. My son really loves it though, and it keeps hold of his interest. I think £6.99 is a lot for Childs book. I would purchase as a gift and I would recommend. Initial thoughts were that it was too detailed, and son would lose interest. However I was wrong. But this means I may not have bought it if I went on my first impressions. Kate Balls

Laura Awarded The Preposterous Rhinoceros by Tracy Gunaratnam 4/5

I was impressed with the initial impression of the book, the pictures are illustrated well. The font was a good size and easy to read. The quality of the book is good. The book itself is a good size and fairly durable pages. As soon as the book was delivered my 3 year old couldn’t wait to read it. As a book lover she was eager to get stuck in, the illustrations drew her in straight away. We loved the illustrations. They are a good size and colourful enough to hold attention. Each pages picture is relevant to the literature. We enjoyed reading the story. The story itself is rather simple and although it is good it isn’t one that would hold enough attention to read again and again. I wouldn’t say it is a particularly stimulating story, however it has been enjoyed. Overall we were quite pleased with the book. I like the style of font, which makes it easier for children to read. We liked the pictures and the story is short enough for a quick read. I don’t think the book really offers value for money, as nice as the book is I wouldn’t buy the book for the rrp of £6.99. I would consider buying the book if it was cheaper. I would recommend as a nice book. Nice story, well-illustrated but didn’t hold attention in some places.
