It's National Children's Book Week!

every day this week we'll be celebrating this event by highlighting some of the residents of Wood Green and supporters of our bookshop's choices of favourite kid's book.

Day 1.

My Favourite Picture book, by Tim West (age 45 1/4)

The best children's book of all time is 'Little Rabbit Foo Foo' retold by Michael Rosen. The main character - Little Rabbit Foo Foo - is a happy smiling bunny in possession of a shiny red motorcyle, a patched yellow net and a lovely red mallet. His only pleasure is to whizz around the forest scooping up various critters in his net. He then parks somewhere quiet and releases the various critters, giving them a friendly bop on the head with the aforementioned mallet. The only fly in Foo Foo's ointment is the Good Fairy, who is something like a woodland police officer. She always appears after Foo Foo has handed out one of his trademark boppings and issues him with increasingly stronger warnings. Does this deter our erstwhile anti-hero? Well, no, otherwise it would be a very short book. Does Foo Foo get his comeuppance? Well, you'll just have to read it to find out
