Penguin, 2019. ISBN: 9780241405024.
(Age: Pre-school) Recommended. Another Peppa Pig adventure will thrill all the young fans who love to watch the TV show. This time Peppa Pig has been fortunate enough to win a colouring competition and the prize is a trip to the Great Barrier Reef. With her family and Miss Rabbit her teacher, the group gets organised for the journey, buying what they need and then going by plane to Australia. Miss Rabbit had a very exciting trip by hot-air balloon, helicopter and boat! Peppa learnt all about marine biology, diving and different sea creatures that lived in the Great Barrier Reef.
With its enticing sparkly aqua green cover, and beautiful pictures, this will be a book that young children will enjoy. At the same time they will learn what marine biology is, different ways of travelling and the joy of diving deep and looking at the sea life, different fish and corals that are in a reef. What excitement when Peppa finds a rare blue clownfish that hasn't been seen for a while!
Fabulous colours, familiar characters and a narrative that can be read aloud easily makes this a perfect book for any fan of Peppa Pig.
