Kid Lit Blog Hop #45

Welcome back to the Kid Lit Blog Hop #45

This week Gigi and I went to a wonderful book launch.

The Great Garden Mystery.... 

By Renee Treml


With a very lively rhyme, and fantastic scratch design illustrations, we journey along with the animals in the patch, to unravel the great garden mystery.....

We had so much fun, learning about certain animals who do square shaped poo, and doing our very own scratch drawing.

We ate beetroot cookies and received our own magnifying glass and book mark, all very useful tools for solving mysteries, hurrah.

That's all from us today, now onto the hop.....

Someone is stealing the beetroots, who could that somebody be? Join us in the garden and we'll unravel this mystery.
