cock a doodle quack quack children book cover ivor baddielWithout a doubt Jessica’s favourite book in her ever expanding collection of kiddie books is the cute little Cock-a-Doodle Quack! Quack!, written by Ivor Baddiel with help from Sophie Jubb.

Basically it tells the story of a baby rooster whose job it is to wake all the animals up in the morning, but unfortunately he has no idea what to say in order to get them all out of bed. He turns to the various farm animals asking for their advice, but discovers in turn that none of their sounds are quite right for waking everybody up!

It’s cute, it’s fun, and there are a lot of farm animal noises to be made, meaning it’s a guaranteed hit.

The painted illustrations by Ailie Busby are very simple and exaggerated in terms of shapes and detail, but the colours are very vibrant, and the animal characters exceedingly cute and ‘happy’, meaning that it’s an absolute visual treat for Jessica to watch as I flip through the pages.

In summary, no wonder this is Jessie’s favourite book!
