Somewhere to review books I'm reading without giving away any spoilers!
Title: The Lost Boy
Series: The Adventures of Billy Bog Brush
Author: Ian Campbell & Tim Constable
Release Date: 15th August 2019
Genre: Picture Book
Page Count: 40
Publisher: Clink Street Publishing
While Billy is out for a walk, he comes across a lady who is looking rather worried. Offering to help, he discovers that her son hasn’t come home for his tea when he should have. Billy, who knows all the places where the local children go to play, suggests that he could look for him, which leads to an adventure involving various people and places in his home town, Flushington! In this intriguing story Billy once again demonstrates his willingness to help others and work out a way to do something which at first seems beyond him.
This is another adventure for the small but determined Billy Bog Brush. In this story he helps to look for a missing child, Mikey White, and gets involved with adventurous encounters with the people who live in his home town of Flushington as he tries to discover just what has happened to Mikey, helping other people along the way. It is a great tale of helping others, doing your best and finding ways to achieve your objectives.
The story is engaging, the large illustrations highly appropriate and not all of them are coloured in, making this a picture book that children can colour and complete. After the story ends there are pages with additional activities for children to complete. This is a great addition to the series.
I requested and was gifted a copy of this book and this is my honest review after choosing to read it.
