Charlie Cook's favourite book: 10th Anniversary edition

Chester and Millie have been treated to yet another book from the award winning book duo, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler!

This one is called Charlie Cook's favourite book and this year it is celebrating its 10th Anniversary!

It has been a bedtime favourite for the past few weeks with all 4 of us!

The story is about a boy called Charlie Cook, who sits down to read his favourite book. Its about a pirate captain who is reading a book about goldilocks, who is reading a book about Knights. You can imagine how the rest of the story goes. Its a very unique story and very fun to read! The way the words rhyme means that its easy for Craig and I to read to the children regardless of how tired we are!

Its no surprise to me that this book has sold over a million copies since its release 10 years ago. Its a very clever book! I absolutely love the detail in the illustrations, every time we have read it, we have discovered something new!

In this 10th Anniversary edition, you are treated to some of Axel Scheffler's early sketches and a shiny badge on the front cover. The book has an RRP of £8.85 and I would say that is a fantastic investment. I can see this book being a big hit with both children for a very long time!
