Another quirky, funny book by Paul Jennings.  However, the twist in this tale is that is has been written for adults.  Paul has written a wonderful book aimed directly at parents wanting to help their children learn to read.
"If you are a parent you already have the major ingredient to infect a child with the reading bug - love. You love your kids and children love to be loved. Inject this into the reading situation and you will succeed."

The books I have recommended in The Reading Bug have been selected by four outstanding experts in the fields of children's literature and education.
I am indebted to Kerry White, who made frequent use of The Source at  Penny Forth, Moira Robinson and Kay Sagar also contributed their expertise. Between them they have immeasurable knowledge of children and books. I cannot thank them enough for their assistance.  And a big thank you to Wendy Cooling for the recommended reads in the English edition.
