    Very cute! I love the whimsical theme paired with the interactive plot. Also like that cartoons are used with photographs. I think my son is going to love playing hide and seek with the characters! Four stars!

    A few comments. ‘Rubbish Books’ is the name of the publisher??? Yikes. There is something to the whole what’s in a name things… I find ‘championships’ and ‘tournament’ to be big words for toddlers. Proper nouns, such as people’s names, should be capitalized. Same goes for the first word in a sentence. Punctuation should be used consistently. Why teach bad habits, right? Cute concept, but not professional.

    I don’t care what’s knit-picked, these books are amazing for interactivity, I watch as my child listen and without fail remembers line by pronoucable line; it is my hope to watch her grow with these books. P.S. This site is absolutely recommendable! Thanks
