The Whisker Twitcher by Kathy Tallentire illustrated by Becky Stout #Review #Giveaway


The Whisker Twitcher is a children's picture book which is aimed at children aged 4-6. Written by Kathy Tallentire and illustrated by Becky Stout, it was published on September 27th. I also have a great giveaway with the chance to win a signed copy of the book. Details on how to enter are at the foot of this post.

Grandad is up to something.

When Bella wakes up to find him gone, she heads to the surface to look for him – but the world looks different.

Can Bella conquer her hear of the unknown to find out what is going on? And where is Grandad?

For bunny lovers everywhere.

This is a delightful story which young readers will love to share. They will be able to identify with the little rabbit's confusion and then excitement at the first snow of the winter and all the fun of a snowy afternoon is there in the story. The illustrations help the story to come alive  and I love the expressive faces which Becky has given the animals. 

    The story is ideal for reading aloud and the vocabulary is varied, adding character to the story. It is a lovely wintry read and so relatable. I love the fact that the title was suggested by a child.

Cat and Mouse say: Winter is coming!

 About the Author

Writing is a relatively new part of my life. When I go to schools and am introduced as an author it is still a bit of a surprise to me!

It was the birth of my daughter (in 2016) that changed everything. I had spent many years building up my career in accountancy, accumulating business qualifications and generally working hard in that one field.

Spending time with my little girl and reading hundreds of different children's stories really inspired me. My first book, Nana Duck, was published in 2017. It did well and I found that I enjoyed visiting schools and nurseries . There is nothing like reading your story and getting great reactions from a class full of eager little children.

Now, I'm having ideas all of the time. I'm so looking forward to bringing more stories into the world, to seeing my characters come to life through the talented illustrators that I work with, and inspiring more children in my local area and beyond.
