Shumba's Big Adventure by Lauren St John & Illustrated by Lorna Hussey

My Review

We are new to early readers books and I have to say, they are perfect for kids who are just starting to want more out of a picture book. My daughter felt all grown up with this super little book. It's longer that a picture book but not too long for fidgety little people..

Shumba is a mischievous little lion cub, who loves nothing more than messing around, going on adventures and getting into trouble! But one day Shumba takes things too far and is captured and shipped off to a zoo!

Poor Shumba is so upset and it will take a lot courage for him to get through this BIG adventure!

Aw, we loved this storyline but we felt so sorry for this cheeky little cub! It very subtly tells kids about the dangers of not doing what your told and running off. Adults don't put rules in place to ruin your fun (even if it may feel like it), they do it to protect you and keep you safe! This book puts that point across wonderfully!

The illustrations are very beautiful and we think they complement the story perfectly. My daughter couldn't wait to turn the pages, to see what was going to unfold next in Shumba's big adventure....

This is a brilliant book that has a great message and a lovely outcome. We would very highly recommend this to adventurous little people everywhere!

A BIG 5 Stars!
