While at Pidgin, M and I swapped some recommendations for children’s books. I ended up ordering all that she recommended.
She said the hat ones are quite dark but that is okay – children are far more gruesome than we realise.
I recommended Hoot Owl, Master of Disguise, which I’d read about on the Spike and like a lot (although I had to google “hubristic”). I must admit that I also ordered the Princess and the Pony, which my son really likes.
