Reviews Say Billy the Goat Blog Billy the Goat's Big Breakfast


4 Stars A Lot of Fun for Adult and Child Alike Jez is an author who turns events upside down and brings a wonderful sense of humour to the table (in this case literally.) Within this book is a story that is a whole of silly fun, has some great characters and of course illustrations that stand out from a crowd, so much so that you'll find that yourself and the readee will be sat there lovingly pouring over each wonderful image. Back this up with an overall arc and a series to accompany it and all round it'll be a whole lot of fun at breakfast time.

4 Stars Another cracker from Jez If you read any picture books, it is likely you will be familiar with the work of Jez Alborough... Billy the Goat's Big Breakfast is the sequel to Nat the Cat's Sunny Smile and has the same characters sharing adventures. Greedy Billy can't wait for his breakfast at Nat the Cat's house. He is ravenous! But wait he must as it isn't yet ready. However, he sneaks a bite of the bread dough and soon his tummy is swollen. What will Nat the Cat say?

Written in a charming rhyme, children will love this book. It is has large, bold illustrations which make it perfect for sharing 1-1 or as part of a class/group. The tale promotes friendship and understanding and has a moral message alongside Alborough's trademark humour. It also has the additional feature of a song for children to join in with-the music and lyrics are in the book and can be downloaded from the author's website.
