Review by Stacey

Fletcher is visiting the seaside when he comes across a rockpool. He loves watching the sea creatures within but gets worried when the water starts to disappear, what will happen to his new friends and how can he save them?

Fletcher and the Rockpool is another lovely book in the Fletcher the Fox series, the books all have an old-fashioned quality to them and remind me of the stories I read as a child.

The illustrations have a crayon effect to them and are beautiful to look at. The story is quite adorable and I can imagine children having the same thoughts about rockpools when the water recedes and becoming worried about the creatures within.

If you are looking for a wholesome, sweet read to share with your children/guardians then this is the one to pick up.

I grew up in London, close to Richmond Park – a beautiful deer park big enough to get lost in, where I got to know lots of the characters who have since popped up in my stories and poems.

I have always loved writing – I enjoy the sound and rhythm of words, and many of my poems for children have been published in anthologies. My One Week of Poems series of short ebooks covers Christmas, dinosaur, garden, space, football and spooky poems, which are gathered together in the One Week of Poems Box Set. The most recent books in the series are One Week of Seaside Poems and One Week of Pirate Poems.

When I had my children I started writing stories for picture books, and my first book, Fred and the Little Egg, was published in 2005. Since then I have written lots of stories about animals including rabbits, mules, dragons, hedgehogs, squirrels, mice and a kind-hearted but easily confused fox.

I have been lucky enough to work with some wonderful illustrators, and my books have been published in many languages.
