Ooh Pretty Flower! by Andrew Davenport

(8.0/10)

Ooh Pretty Flower! Is the second book from the In The Night Garden collection and is a board book containing bright and colourful pictures of characters from the television series.

This book tells the story of Upsy Daisy and Igglepiggle and their journey to visit the prettiest flower in the garden. However, this journey isn't without it's problems and the books theme of 'compromise' is simple enough for children to understand. Told in a charming and positive manner, the story has a message without being preachy.

As with all In The night Garden books the end of the story is signalled by the phrase “ Isn't That A Pip?!' as are the television series episodes, giving children a reassuring familiarity and something they can immediately join in with. As well as the story there are speech bubbles from the characters on certain pages allowing you, if you so wish, to entertain your child with your best impressions of their favourite characters but rest assured these aren't necessary for the story.

Another fun and highly recommended book that children aged 0-2 will definitely enjoy with a message that can be appreciated by slightly older children too.
