Book Review: Tommy Twigtree and the Carrot Crunchers

Our Review

Baby girl is a bit young for Tommy Twigtree due to the amount of text, I’d say the recommended age is around 4-7 years old. Nevertheless she adored the illustrations and loved listening to me as I read it to her. I’m sure as she gets older it will become easier for her to understand.

The story focuses around friendships and working together and it touches on bullying. Tommy Twigtree is a tree in the garden and oversees everything. When he hears Olive Onion and Larry Leek discussing how lonely they are he suggests planting some new friends. Along comes some carrot seeds and a load of new neighbours. Of course carrots bring rabbits wanting them for tea. How can the carrots be protected from Robbie Rabbit and his fellow bunny bandits?

We thoroughly enjoyed Tommy Twigtree and the Carrot Crunchers and are looking forward to the next installment.

About the Author

Michael lives in rural Sussex with his wife. His story telling started when his eldest grandchild was old enough to appreciate a bedtime tale. Rather than read to her he began to craft stories about the trees, plants and animals that live in his garden. As time passed and a second grandchild also enjoyed these tales of adventure and daring, the stories began to create a whole world that lived and went about its business right in his garden.

His grand kids, Poppy and Rudi continue to enjoy further developments in the lives of the characters that populate these stories and Tommy Twigtree and The Carrot Crunchers is the first in a series charming garden tales.
