I liked the sound of the title, the word Fnurgle sounded like it could be entertaining and so I happily put in a request to review this book. The book caught my kids attention with little difficulty, though the particular shade of pink isn't really to my liking so I haven't spent much time looking at it, my kids don't care about that. It is a nice and solid board book so will stand the test of time well, my youngest is usually very gentle with books but this is nice and tough so will last anything that she decides to throw at it.

I read the book and my mother read the book to my three kids and they all enjoyed it though we were all a little confused and thought that the creature shown throughout the book was something else and not the Fnurgle, though it is the Fnurgle... The kids didn't seem to pick up on this the first two readings but by the time they'd read it a couple of times they knew that they were right, just really bad at finding him and happily pointed out where he was on the pages.

This isn't a book that I really enjoyed reading to the kids but they like it, so happy for it to stay on their bookshelf.

This book has been so well received at my house by both of my children. Firstly, this is a board book and as such, it is perfect for my little girl. She is almost 3, and is so into books. But she is still very little and always so rough with books. She doesn't mean to, but she bends pages and folds pages over inside books, so it's not great for the life of the book. Having a board book means I don't have to worry about the book and she can read it as she likes.

My eldest child is gentle with books, but she still struggles with reading. She is going from strength to strength with reading at school, but she is still below average. Books like this give her a bit of confidence that she'll be able to read it herself. Even with a weird word in it like Fnurgle!

The cover art and the illustrations in this book are so bright and colourful, they really drew the eye. The Fnurgle is a silly looking character, who is easy for kids to find, even if the narrator can't seem to find him. This brought so much laughter and fun to reading time. Both girls just adored the story, and loved to pour over the pictures as well. My youngest loved the pictures of the pigs on the walls in the bedroom, and the broom in the garage. Those are her favourite parts, apart from the cats.

My eldest was horrified to see where the Fnurgle was hiding in the bathroom. She felt a bit sick at the thought, though her sister though it was very funny. I have been reading this book to my youngest at bedtime almost every day. She picks to read it herself, tracing the words and looking at the pictures. Then she hands me the book for me to read and so the cycle goes. She will often ask if she can have "Fingle" or "Fingurgle" which is so cute, and confuses her sister no end.

This morning as I came downstairs to see what they were up to giggling on the couch, this is how I found them. My eldest was reading, of her own accord, to her sister. I was so proud my chest just about burst. Thank you, so much Scholastic and KIWIreviews for helping me bring the magic of reading to life in my house!
