Review: The Great Snortle Hunt

In a scary-creepy house on a bumpy-steepy hill, there lives a Snortle, or so it's been said.

Mouse dares his friends Cat and Dog to go take a peek at the creepy house. So they amass their gear--a torch, a rope, cake (Snortles have huge appetites), and off they go.

Thump! What's that noise? The friends jump out of their skins but it's only Rabbit who wants to join in.

The wind whistles as they scale the hill and approach the creepy house. What will they find inside?
A classic storyline of overcoming fear and 'never presuming', The Great Snortle Hunt is a gorgeously-illustrated book, with adorable characters and a cute ending. Kids will thoroughly enjoy coming along on the 'hunt', with dark, creepy pages to navigate before the monster is revealed.
