A review by Emma Streeton
Evie and Pog are the best of friends. Evie is a six-year-old girl and Pog is a dog. But Pog is the best kind of dog ever as he likes to make beds, tidy up and drink tea when he reads the newspaper. While Evie is a girl who loves to read, bake and roll on the daisy-spot grass. These two spend their days in their extremely cool tree house contentedly doing their own favorite things. That is until life peeks its head up their slide and invites them down for adventure and mischief.
This is the third book in what is a fabulous series aimed at newly independent readers. There are three stories in each book and what a lot of fun and smiles they are destined to bring.
My oldest bookworm happily took this book out of my hands for independent bedtime reading. She loved the illustrations. They are very thorough and without a doubt will appeal to early readers. The short stories are dynamic and fast-paced. Evie and Pog are very lovable fun characters. This is an ideal combination for engaging young readers, particularly those who may be more reluctant to fall in love with books.
There really isn’t anything not to like about this gorgeous series and it is definitely a great recommendation for those new to reading.
If your bookworm enjoys the adventures of the bestselling series Ella and Olivia, the escapades of Evie and Pog will not fail to disappoint.
Emma tells me her bookworms are really getting into this review business, even telling their mum how many stars to give a book and offering other feedback. I wonder if reviewing books has a proven impact on children’s literacy levels? – Editor.
