Goodnight Digger, by Michelle Robinson and Nick East
Goodnight Digger marks the creative debut of Michelle Robinson and Nick East, the author and illustrator team behind this latest offering from Puffin books. Written in rhyming couplets, the story is simple to follow for the target age-range (3-7 year old boys) and creates a fun rhythm when spoken aloud that will keep its young audience entertained. East brings the story to life in an impressive manner with bright and colourful illustrations throughout that leave plenty of room for exploration.
Children’s picture books are an often underrated form of art and, while Goodnight Digger is pretty standard in its approach, its execution can’t be faulted. An enjoyable read for your little one at bedtime.
