Will Natterjack Toad EVER get to eat his cookies? Or will he become a SNACK himself?

Do you have a favourite snack? One you’ve been thinking about all day, and just can’t wait to tuck into? Well, our friend Natterjack Toad has a packet of delicious chocolate-chunk crunchy-munch cookies and he can’t wait to tuck in. So, he gets himself all nice and comfortable, ready to savour every last chocolately bite – he reaches into the packet, he opens his mouth, and then …

Natterjack Toad can’t believe it! Every time he tries to eat his cookies, there’s something in the way: a lanky heron, a frisky-whiskered weasel, a scurrying vole – all on the lookout for a (toady) snack themselves. Will he ever be able to eat his chocolate-chunk crunchy-munch cookies in peace?

Review by Stacey

Natterjack Toad Can’t Believe It! is a young children’s picture book about a toad who just wants to eat his crunchy chocolate chip cookie but every time he tries to something happens and he has to stop before he can take a bite or the noise might give away his position to predators.

The book is good fun and will have little ones laughing along. There is quite a lot of text within the book though parts are repeated on each double-page. The plot is enjoyable and exciting and the illustrations which are full-page, bright, and colourful help to bring Toad and his friends to life.

Overall, who doesn’t love a story that features chocolate chip cookies? I’m sure youngsters will. This is a perfect book for a bedtime story.
