Friday Pick{ture Book} – Muffin and The Birthday Surprise (Clara Vulliamy)

The legendary and popular @HomeDad75’s #FictionFriday has now been replaced by #FridayPick{tureBook} being run by the fab Child Led Chaos so this week I decided to join in and share a fab book we have just received from a wonderful lady and author.

Many of you may have read my posts relating to Martha and The Bunny Brothers, written by the lovely and talented Clara Vulliamy.

Well we were recently very lucky and honoured to be sent two signed books by Clara “Muffin and the Birthday Surprise” and “Muffin and the Expedition”.

My daughter has LOVED them since they arrived and we just had to share them with you!

The book I am choosing to highlight this week as part of this new fiction linky is Muffin and the Birthday Surprise (Clara Vulliamy, Orchard Books, 2011)

The Muffin series is specially written for pre-schoolers and has lovely engaging and colourful illustrations to accompany the really fun stories!

Muffin and the Birthday Surprise

“Muffin jumps out of bed and hurries to the letterbox, an invitation has arrived!”

Muffin is going to his friends birthday and sets off with a big bag of sugar buns, but as hunger sets in en route he soon finds himself with an empty bag for a present!

How will Muffin get around this one??? Well with imagination of course!

I won’t share the outcome of the story but lets just say all’s well that ends well and it really encourages little ones to use their imagination!

It’s a lovely fun story, I’d really recommend this book (and the other Muffin books too!) to any mums with young children!

My Little Girl is Officially a Member of the Most Prestigious Bunny Club!

So this morning my little girl got a fab surprise in the post from the lovely Clara Vulliamy from Sunny Side Up, in the form of her very own membership pack for the Martha and the Bunny Brothers Happy Bunny Club.

She was so excited and eagerly opened the parcel to see what was inside.

Clara had very kindly sent a lovely card, personally written to my little girl, with an official Martha and the Bunny Brothers Happy Bunny Club certificate, badge, stickers and chocolate bunny.

We immediately had to put the badge on and my little girl proudly walked around the room clutching her card and certificate.

If you haven’t already seen Clara has just launched her new book, “Martha and the Bunny Brothers I Heart School” a wonderful tale of the positive side of going to school with Martha the bunny getting ready for her first day at school. Martha is really excited and deciding what to wear but knows that her bunny brothers are going to miss her lots so she has a brilliant idea!

To find out more why not ‘hop’ on over to Clara’s blog to find out more and sign up to the Happy Bunny Club yourselves

You can also find the book on Amazon
