About the BookLittle Larry loves his lucky lobster, but one day, Larry wakes to find his beloved pet dead. Afraid of getting in trouble, Larry attempts to hide his lobster, but all that does is make his situation worse. Eventually, Larry tries one too many hiding places. Through Larry’s little misadventure, children can learn the same lesson Larry had to and also learn just how fun reading can be! Written by Nicky Gaymer-Jones and illustrated by Kaelin Twede, Little Larry Loses His Little Lucky Lobster Down the Loo is the first book in a series that uses alliteration to help children develop their speech and reading abilities. Each book in this series will focus on one letter of the alphabet.
(Disclaimer: The author both paid me for my time and provided me with a free digital copy of their book in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. All opinions expressed within this review are my own.)
This book was an absolute joy to read! With the heavy alliteration throughout focusing on the letter “l,” it was especially fun and melodic to read aloud. I loved how this book encouraged children to be open toward their parents, even when they might get in trouble. I also loved how the author was able to make a potentially sad situation humorous and lighthearted. Little Larry Loses His Little Lucky Lobster Down the Loo by Nicky Gaymer-Jones was an imaginative read targeted toward grades K-6 that's sure to captivate children with its humorous, flowing narrative and engaging illustrations.
