I’ve heard a lot about the author, Alain Gree, but never actually come across his work before. We have however been enjoying some of this recent books that feature Romeo the Dog, Romeo Explores the City and Romeo’s Big Book of Clever Ideas.
I’m not entirely sure how best to describe these books, other than ‘quaint’. They remind me a lot of the books from my childhood that I think were my parents at some stage. They are playful and fun and Romeo certainly appeals to my oldest two.
Romeo’s Big Book of Clever Ideas follows Romeo who is trying to get to his camping holiday, but his suitcase is simply too heavy and so a series of ‘clever ideas’ follow as to how to get the suitcase moving. This is such a fun book and Mr D finds this book so so funny, and laughs away as we read it together. Romeo really is quite inventive as he thinks of different approaches and it is beautifully illustrated.
There is a timeless quality and charm to Romeo and he really is quite a loveable character; one that I think both the older children and I enjoyed reading about straight away.
Romeo Explores The City is aimed at younger readers and is a good book to use as a vocab builder. This is a simple but fun story which invites interaction as Romeo explores his city because the reader is invited to search for different things and are given clues as to what will be on the next page. It’s the same illustration style and it really is very engaging for young children. We have enjoyed this book and I think it will be one Mr H might enjoy when he is a touch older.
I find these books quite calming to read with the children and they are really quite different to their usual picture books; I suspect this is why they have been so appealing to them.
