Kristina Stephenson’s books are all ideal for that tricky picture book age around Year 1 and 2 when the shorter stories don’t offer quite enough but when proper chapter books are too much to tackle at bedtime.
Molly Maybe is a new adventurer from Kristina Stephenson who is best known for here Sir Charlie Stinky Socks books. Clearly as she is a little girl its an appealing read to little adventurous girls like my own little girl, however my boys enjoyed the story as well because Molly Maybe isn’t a girly girl which is great. Molly is exactly the sort of girl that I want my children to read about.
This is a book with a message and basically its about not judging things by what they look like. There are some lovely phrases which we have been recounting as we go on walks; ‘he’s huge and hairy but not at all scary’ springs to mind.
This is a fun, enjoyable read which demonstrates to little girls that it doesn’t have to be all about pink stuff, that they can imagine themselves having adventures and solving puzzles. I like it a lot and the children have all enjoyed reading it. We are looking forward to reading more of Molly’s adventures.
