Sequel that continues the theme
Sequel that continues the theme, good uses for parents.
The first Truth Pixie book was a novelty, in that it covered a 'self help' topic that was chock full of advice in rhyme, using a character 'spin off' from another series. It was well done.
Here the Truth Pixie takes us to the minefield that is school. Again in rhyme, the wonderful Olivia Coleman lends her vocal talents to reading the book for us. The Pixie faces the perennial worries every child has on their mind - fitting in, making friends, facing bullies.
While my eight-year-old enjoyed it, I would say it might have had more of an impact on a younger child, one either starting at school or nervous about a new one. Parents might be able to use this when discussing these kinds of issues with their children.
It's less than an hour long to listen to, or maybe 1-2 bedtimes' worth of reading. Makes a pleasant little listen.
I think I preferred her first adventure, for the originality. I also prefer Haig in prose to rhyme, though there is nothing wrong with his style.
A sweet little volume, possibly best when targeted at the right reader, more so than the first adventure.
For ages 5-9.
