A wonderfully fun and entertaining illustrated chapter book with black and white illustrations throughout. A great story to read aloud with younger readers or for newly independent readers to enjoy themselves.
This interview with Donovan by The Sapling offers fantastic insight into his creation of the Flying Furballs series, which he developed to encourage reluctant readers.
Booksellers NZ ~ “With the imagery of World War One, and illustrated pages of newspapers and comics, this is a visually attractive book and my children found it very engaging. Breaking up the text this way makes progress through the book very quick for young readers. Both children enjoyed the cat and dog puns.
“While this is the fourth book in the series, with recurring characters, it is not necessary to read the books in order. These books are ideally suited for children aged 7-10 who will really enjoy the animal puns and pictures.”
