Today I am excited to be joining a slightly different tour as we think about what to get the kids for Christmas. Check out our review for Hound on a Scrounge by Maria Bucci

My Review

Meet Buddy as he kicks off this interactive story that will have the kids wanting to mimic what he is doing, whilst also learning about the history behind an Afternoon Tea. I can just imagine kids pretending to sit under the table whilst waiting for the next page to be be read and see what their next instruction involves.

With fun images throughout the story, the writing is a great size and is clear to understand making it easy for both adults to read to children at night or for kids to attempt to read themselves. Plus it is a total bargain, making it an absolute steal to add to their Christmas presents this year.

We loved reading this one and have read it a few times and enjoyed it with and without using the illustrations to add extra context and laughter to the story. This story will be great even for the more reluctant readers due to the quirkiness and style in which it has been written and illustrated.

“Sniff, Snuffle, Sniff!”

“Can you smell the delicious aroma coming from this book?

It’s time for afternoon Tea…Slurrrp!”

Meet Buddy.  He loves food, food and more food.  But he’s not just a hound on a scrounge – Buddy has a wonderful true story about afternoon tea that he would love to share with you.

“I hope you can join me…ooh, but hurry! They’re bringing out the food…Woofety Woof!

Meet the Author

I have always loved children’s books and, after studying various picture book courses, I decided to take the plunge and write my own. Hoping to educate and entertain, as well as involve the young reader, my debut also includes a bit of history. When I’m not writing, I enjoy taking the real Buddy hound on long walks and spending time with my family. I also love to bake, sing and paint but sadly, I have not mastered doing all three at the same time!

I am a total bookworm who loves nothing more than to lose herself in a book. My pile of books to read is teetering higher and higher as there are not enough hours in the day compared to how many old and new amazing books there are out there to read. I love to read in my spare time and books are a massive part of our household. I feel really lucky that Daisy also loves losing herself in the amazing worlds the authors are creating for us and neither of us ever go very far without having a book to hand as you never know when an opportunity to read may present itself.
