Bookstagram Tour Review: Tommy Twigtree and The Gunpowder Plot by Michael Firman

Hey everyone!
Today’s review is a little different to usual, as it’s a review of a children’s book! This review actually comes from not only me, but my 4 year old daughter!

It is my stop on the bookstagram tour for Tommy Twigtree and The Gunpowder Plot by Michael Firman, so I decided to also share it on my blog, and I am excited to be sharing our review with you all.

A massive thank you to @KaleidoscopicBT for allowing me to be a part of the tour, and for providing me with a beautiful copy of the book, in exchange for an honest review.

Book Blurb:

Tommy Twigtree and his friends are planning the annual fireworks party.

That is until Robbie Rabbit and his bandits hatch an explosive plan.

Our Review:

Evelyn really enjoyed this fun little read. She particularly liked that the trees could talk and walk, and she loved the mischievous rabbits! She also thought it was hilarious that the gardeners name is Ray, as that’s my dad’s name.

I liked how the story highlights the dangers of playing with things you shouldn’t (especially around fireworks), but in a way that was entertaining and easy for young children to understand.

I will definitely be picking up the other books in the Tommy Twigtree series for Evelyn!

About The Author:

Michael lives in rural Sussex with his wife. His story telling started when his eldest grandchild was old enough to appreciate a bedtime tale. Rather than read to her he began to craft stories about the trees, plants and animals that live in his garden. As time passed and a second grandchild also enjoyed these tales of adventure and daring, the stories began to create a whole world that lived and went about its business right in his garden.

His grand kids, Poppy and Rudi continue to enjoy further developments in the lives of the characters that populate these stories and Tommy Twigtree and The Gunpowder Plot is the newest book in a series charming garden tales.
