Walker Books, 2010. ISBN 978406326543.
(Age 3-6) Bookaboo, the world famous rock and roll drummer puppy is in Paris with his band. Besieged by fans and photographers it seems that he can't get out of the Bookabus for the story that he really needs to hear. But then he has a great idea. Donning a pink wig and girl's clothing Bookaboo sets out for storytime at the Bow Wow Bookshop. When a huge sneeze dislodges his wig, Bookaboo's disguise comes unstuck but he still gets his daily story.
This funny story starring BAFTA-award winning Bookaboo is sure to appeal to young children. Bookaboo is a most appealing character and his addiction to a daily story will be welcomed by both children and parents who can't do without a story themselves.
The illustrations are bold and bright and add to the humour of the story. The delightful addition of ,The hare and the tortoise, a mini book, gives the young reader or listener the opportunity to share a second story with Bookaboo.
