With Halloween not far away, I though it appropriate to share with you two of the latest books from Parragon. Both of them are based around the theme of baddies and monsters.
The first of these books is ‘Disney Descendants: The Isle of the Lost’ which would suit older children.
Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost – a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains and their children now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world. But hidden in the Forbidden Fortress is a Dragon’s Eye: the villains’ only hope of escape. Only the cleverest, evilest, nastiest villain can find it … who will it be? In the quest for the Dragon’s Eye, the villains’ kids learn that being good ain’t so bad – and sometimes it even helps!
Grace did start to read this (she is 8 years old) but she found it rather hard-going and a little tricky to understand. She would like to give it another try when she is older. Personally, I think it looks like a great book and it is going on my list of books to read soon! RRP £6.99.
The second book is far more suited to Grace. This is ‘My Big Book of Monster Fun’.
Keeping kids entertained over the half term holiday during October can prove to be a little trickier as the days get shorter and there is less time to be able to play outside. This book of Monster Fun will keep them occupied for hours! With over 180 pages of stories, colouring, activities and games. There is even a mini board game at the back.
I think this book is great. It will help to keep Grace busy on an as and when basis. The pictures are colourful and eye-catching. RRP £7.99
