Early Reviews

Just loved Aunt Sally and the little adventures she went on. It was a great and easy read.  Kids will love it.

Halle Chizzotti, Aged 15

 

The children’s books I believe will be a big hit.  I love how Aunt Sally goes on adventures.  The books are also very easy to read and understand which is a huge plus, and I love the rhyming as children love this kind of thing and it will be something that will stick with them.  They’re also very engaging and children will love them!!!

I liked reading it aloud because it's poetry.  Aunt Sally reminded me of my own cheeky kitten.

Jean Peel's poetry perfectly captures the special bond that forms between children and their pets.  The Aunt Sally stories possess an old-world charm and conjure up memories from one's own child-hood.  Jean Peel's picturesque writing style is both perceptive and detailed and allows the reader to read and enjoy Aunt Sally's adventures time and time again.

I think the rhythm makes it very enticing to read. A classic children's story. Humorous, easy to visualize and Aunt Sally is a loving character. A perfect story for the little tots.

‘Aunt Sally went to the zoo’ is a very good poem in the way that it engages you yet entertains through rhyming every line. At first, I thought the phrase like ‘Lovely Grub’ was maybe not right for very young children who may not know what grub was but once read out loud, it made a lot more sense in my opinion.

The story of ‘How Aunt Sally Got Her Name’ has good rhyme and is easy to read because it has good cohesion.   I would give this 4.75 stars out of 5.  Recommended for readers under the age of 8.

I have just read one of the books of the Aunt Sally series and thoroughly enjoyed it.  It is well written and the format works perfectly.  With colourful illustrations, the series is perfect for younger children, especially bed-time readings by parents and grandparents.  Like the young people, I look forward to more of Aunt Sally’s adventures and recommend you do the same!
