9780340999936: Amazing Esme

Follow the wildly imaginative adventures of Esme as she leaves behind her circus home for the first time to spend the summer with her cousins Magnus, Cosmo and Gus at Maclinkey Castle where it's easy to get lost and where you can discover all sorts of weird and wonderful animals in unlikely places - there are porcupines in beds, lizards in drawers and giraffes on the loo. It's all a little wonderful and a lot overwhelming and when her pet donkey, Donk, turns up in a parcel sent from her parents, the fun really begins.

When hundreds of baby penguins hatch in Esme's top floor bedroom, the children have to figure out how to get them outside. Esme and her cousin have the ingenious idea of building a helter skelter around the castle turret, but this is just the start - soon Maclinkey Castle is turned into a full-on Fairground Circus with a big wheel, Bumper Bears, and the show stopping Flying Tigers starring Esme herself!

About the Author:

As a child Tamara practically lived in bookshops. She read more children's books whilst studying English and Education, specialising in Children's Literature. After a number of years spent as a literacy co-ordinator, Tamara had her first child and decided she would like to live in a children's bookshop again. As she couldn't find one that she liked she founded the award winning Tales on Moon Lane bookshop in Herne Hill, filling it with her favourite books. One day, she noticed a gap in the shelves in the 5-8 year old section and being unable to find any books that she loved she started to write herself to try and fill it. That is when Amazing Esme turned up.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 2–4—Esme has never been to school. She has been raised in a circus by her performer parents. When she goes to the country to spend the summer in her cousins' castle, she is in for an adventure. The castle is full of amazing animals that her uncle rescued from all over the world, including a pig with a unicorn horn. This story is full of fantastical creatures, delicious breakfast food, and silly incidents. Young readers will enjoy Esme and her cousins' antics. There is plenty of mischief as they try to get a group of freshly hatched penguins into a pond by building a slide from the tall tower. The illustrations are reminiscent of those by Quentin Blake in Roald Dahl's books, adding a bit of fun. The text is simple enough for emerging readers while offering plenty of new words to strengthen vocabulary. This amusing new series will engage children who love silly stories and animals.—Kris Hickey, Columbus Metropolitan Library, OH
