Nibbles the Book Monster Book Review and Activities
Nibbles the Book Monster written and illustrated by Emma Yarlett is brand new book for 3-8 year olds. Nibbles is this adorable yellow ball with arms, legs and horns coming out of the ball who likes to nibble things. He will nibble anything but his favorite thing to nibble is books! In the story Nibbles munches through different fairy tales including Jack and the Beanstalk and Little Red Riding Hood and in doing so he changes the fairy tale. The illustrations are quite elaborate with lots of thing to look and find including the running away Nibbles on one of the pages. Because of the way the book was written with Nibbles influencing other fairy tales the book is well loved by many age groups including me. The book also has various sized text, flaps and cutouts which pull in and engage the reader even more. Nibbles has quickly become a favorite book in my house with me and my three and five year old kids.
