Children's Week: My Favourite Book: Dorothy's Garden

We're celebrating Children's Week with a series of reviews, articles and interviews by or with kids! To see all our Children's Week posts, click here.

Which characters are in Dorothy’s Garden?
Dorothy, Wags, Henry, Captain and The Wiggles — Jeff, Anthony, Sam and Murray. Not Lachy, Emma or Simon.

What happens in the story?
They all plant Dorothy’s Garden and the seeds bloom into flowers.

Why do you like the book?
I just do. Dorothy makes me laugh and so does Jeff when he falls asleep in the bushes.

What is your favourite part of the story?
When the flowers bloom and bloom and they grow like my plants.

Which is your favourite picture?
I like the front (cover). It is colourful.

- This review brought to you by Lilly, age 2, South Australia. (Lilly is a huge fan of The Wiggles — both past and present — and was lucky enough to find this book at a local garage sale!)
