Summary from Little Tiger Press
It’s Arthur’s first day apart from his mummy and he really misses her. Even his fantastic dragon costume and favourite dragon toy don’t cheer him up. “Raaargh!” he roars grumpily. But luckily Granny knows just what to do…
This book is an aww fest! If you think the cover is heart-melting, there is more inside to make you squee over the adorable Arthur who is forever cute in his costume. I loved how to make it easier for him to be away from his mother he had a toy kept over there. It was funny how his grandmother tried to distract him, but he still associated the doorbell going with his mother returning. It was fun watching the two of them do the role play which managed to completely distract Arthur in the end. I wish there was a toy for this book, Arthur is utterly adorable and I want him!
Another sweet story is I Love You, Mummy Duck by Dawn Richards and Heidi D'hamers (Children's, Picture book, 10E)/10E)
