Ned and the Joybaloo

Publisher: Andersen Press

Review

Ned always looks forward to Friday when he gets the chance to play with the Joybaloo he finds in the airing cupboard. Together they laugh and play and discover the most fantastic adventures. But when the Joybaloo can’t play anymore, Ned finds he has to make his own fun and realises it isn’t actually that hard after all.

Hiawyn Oram is a master at understanding and interpreting childhood imagination into exciting fantasy tales, brought to life by wonderful illustrations full of movement and light. Ned and the Joybaloo is no exception, and is a delight to share with young children.
