Review & Giveaway: More Totally Amazing Carlton Kids Books


As far as book lovers go my son is definitely on the list. He's a major bookworm and loves the chance to soak up as much knowledge and stories as humanly possible. He never ever goes to bed without reading a handful of books first and it's a great way to settle down for the night. No gadgets or tablets in sight thankfully.


Recently Carlton Books sent Logan another two books to review. As you can imagine he was super thrilled and got stuck right in when they arrived. This time he received the lovely The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl and The Totally Wild, Fact-Packed, Fold-Out Animal Atlas. Both books are really unique and interesting in their own special way. One is obviously very fact based whereas the other has a bit of fairy tale magic surrounding it.

With Logan's thirst for knowledge of the world increasing the Animal Atlas book is perfect to scratch that itch. It's a book of 32 pages crammed full of interesting facts of animals around the world. As the title of the book suggests there are pages within which can fold-out and shows you a map of where the animals live in what part of the world. It's a very fascinating read and even I found it educational for myself. I certainly didn't know that Mongolia has camels or that Saudi Arabia has desert hedgehogs. Even Turkey has the grey wolf which is amazing.


Logan really enjoyed learning about what animals stayed in which countries but for him it was all about the facts, and there's lots of them! He devoured every page with hungry eyes and especially loved reading about the vampire bats of Central America and the Fer-de-lance snake from Mexico. He also couldn't believe that the  smallest bird in the world is 6cm long and that their eggs are the size of peas! It really is a brilliant book to feed the mind and at £9.99 it won't break the bank.

The Gloriumptious Worlds of Roald Dahl is a spectacular scrapbook of stories, characters and creations. It's a miss mash of everything all lovingly collated into one amazing book. I love the fact this book is full of different illustrations, pullouts, page fold-outs and a secret little letter at the back for your child. It has lots of little snippets of all the good stories you expect from Roald Dahl such as James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda etc.


This book has 64 pages jam packed with the most amazing of details. Logan really enjoyed this book as it's busy with lots of small pockets of information on each page in all different formats. He found it really engaging which meant he wanted to keep reading. I had to drag it off him one night as it was way past his bedtime. At £12.99 it's a good buy and definitely one for the Roald Dahl fans out there.

The lovely people from Carlton Books have kindly agreed to give away two copies of each book so you might be in with a chance to win your very own. All you have to do is enter via the rafflecopter widget below. Good luck!
