I am so excited to be a blogger that was selected to receive a sample of Pizazz BEFORE THE RELEASE DATE. And I am so happy to tell you all, it doesn’t disappoint!
I was hooked from the beginning. Pizazz is a totally relatable 9 and a 1/4 year old. And I should know, I’ve nannied a few. But I can’t say for certain if any of my nanny kids have been SUPERHEROES!
She even has an annoying little sister, and with sibling rivalry being my main point to focus on with two girls atm, this is also relatable. (Heads up, as a caregiver I’m reading “How to talk- siblings without rivalry” https://www.amazon.co.uk/How-Talk-Siblings-Without-Rivalry-ebook/dp/B00EF1MJMM/ref=nodl
Pizazz is funny new series for 7+ readers and also has comic strips as well as amazing black and white artwork, making it perfect for reluctant readers as well as our little bookworms. I am a huge fan of giving our children “a wide range of reading material” (National Curriculum) which includes different forms of fiction as well as poetry and non-fiction.
The great thing about comic strips is that they are fun and easy to replicate so your children can make up their own! Google “free comic strip printables” to choose a frame, or they can draw their own!
“Pizazz” comes out on the 6th of August and in January 2021 “Pizazz vs the New Kid” comes out. I don’t even care what my Nanny kid thinks, I CAN’T WAIT!
Sophy Henn is an amazing children’s author and illustrator. I was lucky enough to meet her in a lovely bookshop in Richmond where I got one of my favourite books signed from her.
Pom Pom features in my book!
Sophy even gave me a quote for my own book on her favourite book as a child!
