I enjoyed this book because the illustrations were so good that I think a younger child would be able to understand the story even if their reading is not so great.

I think the price is a little steep for younger children.

I liked the way the characters gave ideas about how to get rid of your blisters because I am always getting blisters and I never know how to get rid of them. Next time I get a blister I can try one of the ideas.

This book is about Hester Lister who ends up with a blister. The story follows Hester on her journey to find out how she can get rid of her blister. She walks her way around town asking different people for advice, and by which she follows all of their advice, but who's advice was the one that worked? And what happened when she got home?

I found this story to be a real tongue twister, and a few times had to start a page again because my tongue was so tied. My 3yr old daughter absolutely adored this book. That may be however as she has recently just had blisters herself from her gumboots.

The illustrations are very quirky and when the characters speak it is shown in speech bubbles which helped my daughter associate which character is doing the talking.
