The Puppet Show, Ursula Dubosarsky , single work children's fiction children's
'Becky plans to put on a puppet show in her living room to entertain her cousin Wesley. It's a version of Beauty and the Beast, with music! Hoping for a bigger audience she advertises her show on the telegraphe pole outside. Mum isn't very pleased when strangers turn up. And at the end of the performance Becky's surprise twist terrifies her litle brother Ed, who starts to cry. But at the end of the day Becky gets spooked and Ed gets the last laugh.' (Publisher's blurb)
The Cubby House, Ursula Dubosarsky , Mitch Vane (illustrator), single work children's fiction adventure
'Becky has many ideas for a cubby house however, her attempts to build them with the help of her brother Ed and new neighbour Midge all end in disaster. Midge invites them over to her house where there is a beautiful cubby house in her backyard and while Becky is suitably impressed, she is more excited by what she sees out the window - lots of cardborad boxes. This story encourages imagination with a focus on the games children play and invent.' (Publication summary)
