Read full description of the books:
The Adventures of Gertie was one of the most endearing, creative and fun children's books that I've read in a long time. It is full of adorable, playful and wonderful illustrations (also done by the author). My four year old loved it. I plan on taking it into his preschool class so the teacher can read it to all of the children and they can also enjoy it.
The book is divided into four different stories; Dirty Gertie from Number 30, Gertie Bakes a Cake, Gertie at the Seaside and Gertie in the Garden.
Dirty Gertie from Number 30 tells a story of Gertie (from house #30) and how she likes to play outside (and how she's going to get outside). Her fun soon comes to an end as bath time comes around and she despairs. It'll be ok though, because she gets to make plans for playing outside the next day!
My favorite illustration on this story is when her mom is calling her for bath time, I love the look on Gertie's face.
In Gertie Bakes a Cake she loves sweet treats, and to make sure her Dad gets a treat she decided to bake a cake and she can't wait to eat it. However before she gets to get it there's something she has to do first!
In this one my favorite illustration is the first one when she ready to start baking. She looks so excited to make a cake!
Gertie at the Seaside has Gertie at the beach with her grandparents, making sandcastles and finding tide pools with small sea creatures to discover.
Two of my favorite illustrations in this story are the one when she's in the tide pool and the next one of the sea creatures.
Gertie in the Garden finds Gertie in her garden meeting a caterpillar and later despairing when she can't find him anymore. No worries though! She finds him later (kind of with a trail with bread crumbs) and he's turned into a beautiful creature!
My favorite illustration in this story is the close up of the flowers. They're so beautiful! I found myself starting at it several times.
I won this book from Goodreads Firstreads.
