I love Pamela Allen’s stories. My parents read them to me when I was young and now I read them to my daughter. Her stories have stood the test of time and Pamela is still writing and illustrating new stories today. Penguin Random House New Zealand have just released a beautifully packed collection of Pamela Allen’s stories just in time for Christmas.
Who Sank the Boat? and Other Stories is a hardback collection of just some of Pamela Allen’s best stories. Inside you’ll find Who Sank the Boat?, My Cat Maisie, Belinda, Alexander’s Outing, Brown Bread and Honey, Daisy All-Sorts, Grandpa and Thomas, Cuthbert’s Babies and Share Said the Rooster. There is also some information at the start of the book about Pamela Allen and the many awards that she has won throughout the years.
This is collection to curl up with and share with the young ones in your life. It’s the perfect gift book to put under the Christmas tree and it is a book that will be shared again and again. I will certainly enjoy re-living my memories of Pamela Allen’s stories with my daughter as we try to figure out who did sink the boat, how to get Belinda back and try to teach Billy and Ben to share.
