Say Hello Like This

Say Hello Like This by Mary Murphy (Walker Books)
HC RRP $24.95
ISBN 9781406347463
Reviewed by Anastasia Gonis

How do dogs, cats, frogs, chickens, beetles or donkeys say hello? What happens when they all say it at the same time? Find out in this humorous book with its clever text and stunning illustrations beginning with the outstanding end pages.

The bold black outline of the animals and thick brush strokes accentuate the joyful mood of every animal in the book. A wonderful choice of vibrant colour and subtle pastel shades adds to the book’s atmosphere of fun and enjoyment which the animals seem to share. This will make playtime perfect for children experimenting with the sounds.

There are flaps to lift for surprises and hidden extensions to the text. This is a hugely entertaining book, full of noise to be made, and laughter to be shared with little ones.
