Daniel O'Dowd was Ever so Loud - Book Review

From the Ever So series comes the latest book, Daniel O'Dowd was Ever so Loud, which we received to review from Maverick Books. Written by Julie Fulton and illustrated by Elina Ellis, Daniel O'Dowd is a very loud boy from the town of Hamilton Shady.

This story sees Daniel and his classmates from school go on an outing to Professor McWhizzit's house to see all of his weird and wonderful creations such as an airport for bees and a telescope made out of cheese. Daniel was desperate to look through the telescope and shouted with delight when he got to have the first peek. What he saw shocked him; a large rock was heading to Earth. Professor McWhizzit decides that Daniel's very loud voice could help them and digs out his rocket to send Daniel on a mission to space to destroy the rock. The plan works and Daniel is delighted, so much so, he can't hear the Professor's instructions on how to get back to Earth. Daniel has to do something he hasn't done before to make sure he gets back to Earth safely...he has to be quiet and listen.

This is a really fun book to read and encourage children to use their listening ears if they find themselves in a tricky situation! It's written in rhyme so it's really easy to follow and it helps Miss C practise her rhyming words. The illustrations are really bright, colourful and fun too.

Daniel O'Dowd was Ever so Loud is available to buy from Amazon.

We received this book for the purposes of a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
