Meet Charlie Bucket, a boy who loves chocolate. Meet Willy Wonker, the owner of a chocolate factory and the world's most wondrous inventor.  An abridged version, this pop-up book's illustrations are the true originals by Quentin Blake. What this version added on was the clever use of cutouts for the popups and usage of special materials and embossing techniques. Entertaining, funny and certainly a beautiful book.

While this was one of my favorite titles when I was younger, Dumpling and I first chanced upon this famous Roald Dahl story on DVD.

“Ronald,” said Elizabeth, “your clothes are really pretty and your hair is all neat. You look like a real prince, but you are a bum.” Now, with spunky lines like these, how can this title be boring? :) Here's sharing our review of The Paper Bag Princess!

Robert Munsch’s children’s book, Love You Forever is among the best-selling kids’ books of all time, but it still tends to provoke very different responses among parents.

Here's sharing our review on the Caldecott medalist "The Little House".  "Beneath the beautiful illustrated cover lies a heartwarming story of a little house caught in a web of modern development.

The Little House by Virginia Lee Burton. A Caldecott Medal winner in 1943 for her memorable picture book The Little House, a poignant story of a cute country cottage that becomes engulfed by the city that grows up around it. A classic!

Sharing a book review on this hilarious story "The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs!" maginative, hilarious and clever are three words which I would use for this title. All of us know the story of the classic tale ‘Three Little Pigs’ but how many have thought of it from the big bad wolf’s perspective?  http://beanienus.blogspot.sg/2013/07/book-review-true-story-of-three-little.html
