Animalympics by Josie Dom Illustrated by Sarah Lou #Review #Giveaway


Animalympics by Josie Dom is a beautiful picture book aimed at children aged 6-11. I have a great giveaway with the chance to win a signed copy. Details on how to enter are at the foot of this post.

Woodpecker Will presents the Animalympics! Whilst the humans stay indoors, the animal kingdom takes over to hold the sporting event of the century! Join the golfing ostriches, trampolining moles and weight-lifting gorillas (plus many more) in a fun rhyming adventure for all ages.

When you first pick up the book, you are struck by how beautiful it is. The illustrations are stunning, so colourful, and reflect the story so well. The story is told in rhyme and follows the animal kingdom as it holds its own Olympics. There is plenty going on in the story with such a range of birds and animals and plenty of humorous touches as they strive to do their best. It will appeal to 6-11 year olds and is quite wordy so will challenge some.

Cat and Mouse say...ready, steady, go! 


About the Author

Josie Dom is a children’s author learning to embrace her individuality.

Join her in a world of imagination where anything could happen and the most important things are friendship and kindness.

Josie lives in the small town of Halstead in Essex with her husband Nic Phine (illustrator of the Lum books), their son and daughter, a mixed-up dog (LabLurchTrievOodle) Frank and a big fluffy ginger cat called Mittens.

Although Josie’s books are too young for her children now, it was their love of stories when they were little which inspired Josie to pick up her pen and create.

After a lifetime in sensible office jobs, Josie is relishing the opportunity to explore her creative side.

Josie is passionate about supporting causes close to her heart.  Each year, Josie donates 15% of profit on book sales to a children’s charity.

In 2020, due to Covid-19, Josie penned an Animalympics which she used to raise funds for UK zoos.
