    I love good graphic’s in any book and this Artist certainly delivers, and stirs the imagination in the reader while capturing the story line perfectly.
    So my vote for the 2015 Children’s Choice Award is

    Little Red Riding Hood ….Not Quite by Yvonne Morrison & Donovan Bixley – Scholastic NZ

  2. Chris Archbold

    As much as I love Little red Riding Hood (Not Quite) my vote has to go to Canterbury Quake by Desna Wallace. – Scholastic NZ. A beautifully poignant book tasking us back through the Canterbury Earthquakes in a truly sensitive way through the eyes of a young girl Maddie. It brings back memories, shares emotions and certainly needed a box of tissues beside me.

    I can’t go past The Letterbox Cat & other poems by Paula Green & Myles Lawford – Scholastic NZ, a wonderful collection of short poems perfectly suited to any primary school. However I do love Little Red Riding Hood…not quite, it’s a lot of fun to read aloud and not just with young students!

    I love ‘I am not a worm’ because it reminds me of my favourite picture book: Tadpole’s Promise. I love the shock twist at the end of I am not a worm.

  6. I am not a Worm – just love this – mostly because my 7 year old created a rather delightful review and retelling of it 🙂

    I am enjoying all the book finalists. I do love Little Red Riding Hood not quite. It’s a great book for sharing with kids, they love the interruptions throughout the story asking questions that are true and informative… much discussion about the story afterwards… and looking at other stories and the bits that are not so true. Lovely artwork too.

    My 5 year old absolutely loves The Three Little Bears…Sort Of by Yvonne Morrison & Donovan Bixley. When he heard they were releasing Little Red Riding Hood…Not Quite it became the number one present my son has been asking for for his Birthday. Even though we havn’t read Little Red Riding Hood… Not Quite, it would have to be my Children’s Choice favourite. Any book that gets a kid so excited about reading that they start choosing books over toys as presents, is a winner in my books!
