A Deal's A Deal by Stephanie Blake (Children's, Picture book, 10/10E)

November 2013, Gecko Press, 32 pages, Hardback, Review copy

Themes: sharing toys, tricking people
Content: Lots of humour

Summary from Gecko Press
Simon and his friend Ferdinand are playing with their cars.

Simon has a yellow one, a blue one, and a green one. But when he spots Ferdinand’s extraordinary red car, he must have it! And so begin the negotiations...

Will someone end up with more than he bargained for? 

Nayuleska's thoughts 
The simple illustrations made it easy to focus on the story which has a good lesson for the reader to
discover. Everyone at some points in their lives wish they had what someone else has - the trickster rabbit discovers playing tricks isn't a good idea with the unexpected and hilarious end.

Suggested read
For another book with a message about manners check out The Big Sticky Bun by Vivian French & Selina Young (Children's, 5 years +, 10/10E)
