I was lucky enough to win this book from the amazing peeps here at KIWIreviews so thought it was only fair we review it. My son loves it and I am a huge fan too, Gone are the days where you get tired of reading boring old one liner books. This is quirky, quick witted and entertaining for the whole family!! I especially love the little rhyming words! Definitely buying a few more in the Kiwi Corker series!

A well written, retold story, with a New Zealand theme. Pictures are interesting, children could have fun finding and pointing to various objects in the pages. This would be a great book to read to pre-schoolers and first year at school. For self reading would be ideal for ages 8-10 year olds as some of the words would be difficult for a younger reader.

The Mayor's Flash New Clothes is a humorous adaptation of the classic The Emperor's New Clothes. The pictures are fun and in my daughter's words "funky". Especially when the Mayor thinks he is parading off his Flash New Clothes down the street when he is actually doing a cheeky streak! There are bits and pieces of kiwiana throughout this book too.

The Mayor of Waikikamukau gets the shock of his life when he realises he has been scammed. This story is very cleverly told. It rhymes throughout and has illustrations that match the mood of the page. Very well done!

This adaptation is a winner! I will be recommending this to others.

I also like the fact that in the series of books, the authors of the original stories are given credit in the book.

Product reviews for listing 4500: Goblins Vs Dwarves
Written by Philip Reeve

Product image for Goblins Vs DwarvesAn army of short, fat, hairy dwarves is tunnelling into goblin territory. They are digging under Clovenstone castle to steal its precious treasure.

Goblins love fighting, but Skarper and Henwyn's rowdy tribe is no match for the giant armoured moles of the enemy. They must seek the help of heroes, trolls and ghosts for a battle that will decide the fate of the goblins forever.
