Review: Animal Soup

This mixed-up animal flap book is just too too cute. Bright and cute and totally clever, this blending of animal types is not only visually adorable – but linguistically special.

“What would I be if I had wings to fly…” the reader is asked, as a bewinged bird takes flight…

“...but walked very slowly instead?” as a trundling turtle ambles across the page.

Lift the turtle flap and we have…


Simple and funny, little ones will giggle along to these quirky, made-up creatures and corresponding picture. Doodler (is that his real name?) shows a glorious sense of humour in his pictures, too, making this an all-round, high value lift-the-flap book for wee ones.
