Drew, Moo and Bunny, Too

Publisher: Walker Books

Drew and his best friends Moo and Bunny are flying on their red rug one night, as they usually do, when they have a disagreement about which way to go. And oh no! The red rug plops into the sea. Just then a speck appears, comes closer and turns into a pirate ship. Once the friends are on the ship’s deck – previously a speck – they meet Captain Jacqueline or Jack and her crew. But the crew are stealing treasures. What to do? Can Drew and Bunny and Moo too find a way to save the day? 

Written by acclaimed Welsh poet and playwright Owen Sheers, this is a rhythmic, lyrical delight. Its many rhymes mean the words flow along and it’s easy to read aloud. The book has a dream-like quality, and is full of drama and wonder, enhanced by the soft, atmospheric drawings from Helen Stephens.

The book is a large, square format, with colour illustrations, and pre-schoolers would enjoy it. Yet, despite it being an imaginative adventure with soft toys, children up to the age of 8 would also enjoy it being read to them. There is a lot to discuss, namely friendship and also taking things that are not yours.
