Uh Oh Milo! – The Gobbling Goblins Reviews

Product Tested By Nicole Reynolds – Arlo 3 Years

Nicole Awarded The Uh Oh Milo! The Gobbling Goblins 5/5

Eye catching and had a feeling from the title it may involve mischief, which every little boy loves and a short story which with Arlo is good as he tends to loose concentration quite quickly. Very good, gives a basic but good understanding of table manners and with the current age of Arlo I thought this was a very appropriate book for him to engage with. Front cover good catchy title and very colourful to the eye and yes it definitely made us want to read it. He did enjoy the book but on a couple of pages it was sort of like a tongue twister so found we lost our flow with reading each page, but for Arlo he loved reading it and would ask most nights to read the goblin book.  He thought the greedy gobbling goblins were funny but he understood the meaning too. He loved the concept of Milo Mary Granny and her magic potion. He did enjoy the story and asked for it to be read to him most nights. The illustrations are fun and understanding. The illustrations definitely bought the story to life  The double pages of ‘yuk’ for example were fun and enjoyed getting involved due to the boldness and illustrations. My son did enjoy the book as it was fun, easy to read, quick and a great learning tool. We have read this every night since it arrived. The book is well presented and high quality. You definitely get your monies worth with how much my son wants to read this book. I loved how fun, easy to read, quick and a great learning tool this book is. My son loved the whole story with bold images and words he could remember and repeat with us. I would buy this book for all the reasons above. I would definitely recommend. This book has been great for us a really positive experience, great value for money and enjoyable for all. Nicole Reynolds – Arlo 3 Years

Lovely quality, and it seemed age appropriate. Thought the book had a good storyline. Front cover was very colourful and lovely picture. James was very excited to read it. James really enjoyed the story. He liked that he could read the story himself. He found the greedy gobbling goblins very funny.  James liked Milo Mary Granny and her magic and he pointed out that it was important to use a knife and fork while eating. James did enjoy the story and read it more than once. The illustrations were lovely vibrant colours and great images. The illustrations kept the book interesting for James. He enjoyed the story and that he could read it himself. He has now read this book several times. The book is good quality with lovely images and good storyline. I think the value is reasonable for the quality. I liked that the book was age appropriate and that James could read it to us confidently. He liked the images of the goblins as he found them funny. I would buy this as lovely story and good quality book. I would recommend for the same reasons. Good story, vibrant images, age appropriate level of reading. My son really enjoyed the book  he liked that he could confidently read it to us. Lovely quality with vibrant images.

Bright and colourful, interesting looking characters, different to books we had at home. Looked engaging. The design of the front cover looked fun and colourful.  Cartoon characters appealed to my daughter. I thought this had quite a lot of text which made the story quite long.  Perhaps it should be aimed at older children like 6 plus. My daughter enjoyed the pictures but did lose interest in the story. Perhaps shorter rhyming verses would have got the message across better about table manners. I thought it was a great concept having Mary Granny creating magic potion to restore harmony and table manners, although I feel my daughter was too young to understand this. The illustrations were engaging and my daughter enjoyed the characters.  Very high quality illustrations which were bright, colourful and lots going on in each page of the book.  The illustrations certainly did bring the story to life. She enjoyed the part where mess was made.  We did not read this much as unfortunately this was not one of her chosen books to read. Good quality book but the text was quite hard to read. Font made this also quite hard. As this was not one of her favourite books for us does not represent value for money.  For me the best part of this book was the illustrations. My daughter loved looking at the pictures. Personally I would not buy this as I feel there are so many more interactive books on sale for the same money with repetitive rhymes, flaps, textures etc which my children would enjoy more. Images were interesting but the story didn’t capture our imagination or become memorable. I was disappointed in the story, lack of interactive features for children, no repetitive rhyme and had a good moral to the story but was lost in so much text.  The illustrations were very good.
