Year 2 Margaret Wild Challenge Week 2

Well done those people who had a go at the challenge question for last week!

In the Kids Book Review interview Margaret says

To be honest, my favourite book is either the one I’ve just finished or am still working on.
Of my published books, I’m fond of a number of them for different reasons e.g. There’s a Sea in My Bedroom because it was my ‘lucky’ book – it helped to get me established and it’s still in print today. Fox, because Ron Brooks’ pictures, typography and design are so incredibly original, beautiful and groundbreaking. Old Pig (also illustrated by Ron) because the pictures are so warm and tender. Harry and Hopper because the illustrator Freya Blackwood approached the story so subtly and sensitively. The Very Best of Friends, illustrated by Julie Vivas.


This weeks question –
