Posie Pixie and The Pancakes by Sarah Hill and Sarah Mauchline (Children's, 5 years +, 10E/10E, short 'n' sweet review)

May 2015, Abel Publishing, 68 pages, Paperback, Review copy 

Summary from Abela Publishing
'Posie Pixie And The Pancakes' is the 7th instalment from Sarah Hill's enchanting 35-book 'Whimsy Wood' children's series for 5-8 year olds. Each wonderfully descriptive book is written for a specific month in the calendar, so the flora and fauna within this magical woodland, change as you read through the series.

'Posie Pixie And The Pancakes' is written for the fern-filled month of February and is bursting at the seams with celandines, blossoming mistletoe, pancakes and frying pans! You'll meet Bromley Badger and Mrs Scarlet the squirrel, who runs The Woodland Store, as well as Posie Pixie and her best friend 'Wibble Woodlouse' of course!

Nayu's thoughts 
This is the best book in the cute series! Pancakes are super yummy, so I loved learning how Posie prepared to make them. Her little friend Wibble who forever makes me smile had me positively grinning when she and Posie ate one too many pancakes and felt ill after! I've experienced that a lot, only with cake/cookie mix. 

It was nice seeing all Posie's friends do what they can for the celebrations, each having a particular talent/field of expertise. Apparently it's the last in the series which is sad as I don't want it to end. The illustrations are watercolour, I think, and I never forget Posie's cute purple outfts with the upturned flower hat. It's a feel good read that will light up your inner pixie!
