I Do Not Like Books Anymore!

Author: Daisy Hirst
Illustrator: Daisy Hirst
Publisher: Walker

Natalie loves the books and stories her parents read aloud and she looks forward to being able to read to herself and her little brother Alphonse joyfully anticipates her reading to him too. But when she starts school she is disappointed to discover that letters and words look like ‘prickles or birds’ feet’ and ‘scuttling insects’. What’s more, the reading books she’s given don’t seem to have stories in them… This picture book about how Natalie learns to love books again with the help of her family and her own imagination demonstrates with great humour that learning to read is about so much more than decoding print.

Natalie and Alphonse also appear in Alphonse, That Is Not OK to Do! (9781406373134), Walker £7.99, and Alphonse, There's Mud on the Ceiling! (9781406390971), Walker £7.99
