Author, Jackie Hosking is a master of rhyme and meter so it’s no surprise that her new picture book, Temper Tabitha is full of luscious language and rollicking fun.
We’ve all seen kids having a meltdown in public. Many of us have experienced it for ourselves, but when the adults around Tabitha join in the dispute over a simple hat, they prove that growing up doesn’t guarantee maturity.
Tabitha wants that hat and will stop at nothing to get it. Unfortunately, so does a boy in a tiger suit and neither of them is prepared to give ground. And when the adults take sides over who they think should have the hat, chaos ensues with hilarious results.
The side splitting illustrations by Leah Russack perfectly complement the text and make Temper Tabitha a joy to read for both children and adults.
This fun and engaging story will prompt lots of important discussions with young readers about mindfulness, respect and sharing.
The bright and colourful illustrations are divine and Jackie’s rhyming text keeps readers of all ages turning the pages.
Published by Larrikin House, this 32 page picture book would make a great Christmas gift for any readers aged 3+
