Book Review and Giveaway: Where Have all the Animals Gone?

This past week we have been catching up on reading with this cute little book about a farm and its animals. Where have all the animals gone? is written by Darren Paul Ellis from Lancashire. Who is an airline pilot when he’s not writing.

Having grown up on a smallholding with cows, geese, chickens, goats and a pony this book appealed to me. The big kid I am! I have a love of all farm things and would love to pass some of this onto baby girl. I think already she is an outdoorsy girl like her mum!

Where Have all the Animals Gone?

Book Description

To a little boy’s shock and disappointment, when he moves into an old barn set in the countryside, he finds that the farmyard animals are no longer living there…He decides that it is not much fun at all with no cows, sheep or ducks to keep him company, so he hatches a plan to let all of the farmyard animals back into the barn without his parents knowing.

Paperback, 18 pages

Published October 31st 2017 by Austin Macauley Publishers Ltd

Where Have all the Animals Gone?

Our Review

Baby girl loved the bright illustrations. With it being a short picture book it’s ideal for keeping the attention span of a 2 year old! I would say it’s recommended for ages between 2 and 6. It’s lovely written with a nice story throughout, and because so many old farm buildings are converted to residential dwellings nowadays it’s a very current story. Especially if you live in a converted barn!
