Mad About Mega Beasts! Giles Andreae & David Wojitowycz

Share the joy

I LOVE picture books and I love it when my kids love books.  In our house that means rhyming and animals.

The latest offering from Giles Andreae, author of Giraffes Can’t Dance, is a gorgeously illustrated romp introducing nature’s most MEGA animals.  There’s a dino, a tiger, a penguin and a bear to name just a few.  This is a beautiful large format paperback, just perfect for little chubba hands to grip and lots of eye candy and hidden fun to spot in each illustration.

Each rhyming vignette includes a fact (which I love!) and still manages to keep things sharp and snappy, holding Nixon’s interest for the duration.  

………actually for the duration of both books, as Mad About Mega Beasts follows the 2011 release, Mad About Mini Beasts and we have to read these consecutively.  It’s the rules.

I’m a fan, these are both books I look forward to reading  – over, and over again, every day.

Available from 28th July RRP $19.99

    My boys both enjoy Giles Andreae books, and I love his style and the rhthym of his words. Commotion in the Ocean is our favourite, and worth seeking out if you don't already have it xx

    “You have all my faith” and he’ll later Faith will be all his.Koolak of the Miquet clan (or however you spell it) has the same name srttcruue as Lorne. Is he from Pylea?I don’t believe that Willow is gay at this point (see Xander, lusting after). I don’t like the implication that it a. is chosen or b. comes up out of the blue. I’m still going for bi.Slayerfest is like a foreshadowing of what Giles will do to Buffy later in the season, but it will be even more cruel because of her powerlessness and his betrayal.Buffy lies to her friends and family about Angel the way she later will about her relationship with Spike.Is Band Candy where they got the idea for the Buffy chocolate bars? (I particularly liked raspberry filled Buffys.)Buffy trying to be responsible foreshadows how she will be thrust into it when Joyce dies and she has to look after Dawn.Snakes. Why did it have to be snakes? And does the Mayor have an affinity for big snake demons? (He probably founded that snake fraternity too.)
