My little Big Town launches a hilarious new Children's book - Gorgeous George & The Giant Geriatric Generator. We were sent a copy of this book to review and my twelve year old eagerly placed it beside her bed ready to read.
Who's the author?
This book is the debut work of Scottish author Stuart Reid who has embarked on a book reading tour throughout Scotland and England. He has already read extracts from his book to over 5,000 pupils at a number of different schools and as he continues his tour he is expected to read to at least another 30,000 pupils over the next twelve months.
Gorgeous George & The Giant Geriatric Generator is an exciting and funny tale following a young boy, George and his Grandpa Jock as they fight to take down the evil Mr Watt's power plant. Rude, crude and packed with hilarious dialogue and strange events. The book was written to encourage children, particularly boys to read more often, as a self read for ages 9+ but also to make bedtime reading fun for younger children and their parents.
And what did we think?
My 12yr old told me that she enjoyed the book and thought it very funny and the illustrations by Calvin Innes were really good.
Would she recommend it to her Friends?
Yes, especially boys but girls would like it too.
Gorgeous George & The Giant Geriatric Generator by Start Reid is available from all good bookstores and online retailers.
