Mrs. F the dancing dolphin, Lale2017


Effective use of cut-away front cover, to draw the reader in. Reverse assembly, with frontispiece towards back, due to cover format. Slightly engaging, allegorical story, using anthropomorphised characters. Nice use of shape of cleaning equipment to echo animals e.g. hose of vacuum cleaner: snake. Enlarged fonts for onomatopoeic words, somewhat cliched.

Topical, as based on environmental concerns, but somehow not fully engaging, mainly due to small size of illustrations and lack of cohesion. Better as a lap-read than a read-aloud.
