Welcome to I Spy Island: the sunny new series from the creators of the blockbuster Supertato books!
In the middle of the ocean, miles from anywhere is a happy little island who loves to play I Spy... Join Island, and friends Glove, Banana, Bird and Bottle as they investigate the curious case of what's just washed up on Island's chin... What can it be? And what adventures lie in store?
This terrific tale of fun, friendship and sunshine is brought to you by the brilliant brains behind such bestselling and beloved characters as Supertato, Barry the Fish with Fingers, Norman the Slug with the Silly Shell and No-Bot the Robot with No Bottom.
I read this book to a class of 30 reception children who were excited by the front cover and who the characters were. The children liked joining in with the game of I spy, and laughed out loud at the ending! It definitely has some funny moments and some very colourful characters with a sense of fun, which is what all the children liked. Banana was definitely their favourite character in the book.
It is a simple story but with a clear message for younger children. As one boy said at the end of the story, "Friendship is much more important than gold and jewels!"
