The Wrong Kind of Bark

Publisher: Egmont

Review

Finlay finds it hard to concentrate at school and is usually thinking about something else when the teacher addresses the class. So, when asked to bring things in for the nature table, Finlay gets the wrong end of the stick. But it’s when he brings in the wrong kind of bark that the chaos really begins!

This is a lovely story, wittily told, which rolls along nicely and has a satisfying ending. Garry Parsons’ lively colour illustrations, accompanied by speech bubbles, illuminate every page and combine with the text to make a funny and heartwarming story for new readers.
