Book review from a charming young man

The other day I was sent this by a customer.


Her son doing a video book review about my children's books, Welly Walks and Biscuit Baking, which also raise money for Whizz-kidz.

I love that his face lights up when he talks about parts of the books which are also my favourite, and how he expands on the story adding his own little twists - I didn't realise they'd had to re-make the biscuit mix because they'd eaten all of it!!

His Mum says "it's nice to share a book with my son that shows a disabled child enjoying normal kid stuff. Books that portray disability as a form of normal are hard to find, and these are clear, fun and refreshing."

Apparently off-camera he said I have to write more books "About a boy who has a Mummy in a wheelchair and they make things together like playcorn."

I've already got 3 books in the pipeline, but for you young man, I'll do my best.

  1. This is a lovely honest opinion that perhaps a child is most qualified to give. I can see why you liked it so much.

    On a related/unrelated note, if you ever do a little video and end up with it side-on like this, or even upside down, there is a free program called 'Freemake' and it allows you to edit, convert and rotate video. It is a plain simple screen, just add the video you want to use, and select the action, then save.

    No links to the company other than as happy users, aged 11 and 46!
