I've An Uncle Ivan by Ben Sanders

I've An Uncle Ivan by Ben Sanders has been shortlisted for this years Children's Book Council Crichton Award for New Illustrators which is the perfect award for this book to be in, as the illustrations are far better than the text (sorry Ben).

I'm a bit fussy with my rhyming texts and I need something more than the opening page,
"I've an Uncle Ivan
 who's drivin' a pie van."


But the retro cartoon style pictures are fun & groovy.
The mayhem of colour and action increases with each added relative and form of transport.

I love hearing from you but I understand that blogger commenting can be a frustrating experience for many.

Make sure you're logged into your account before writing your comment, otherwise blogger will eat it. I have occasionally found lost comments by hitting the back arrow button.

A recent discussion with blogger admin revealed that the ability to post comments "is sensitive to both cookie and script filters. Your readers may need to enable (stop filtering) 'third party cookies', in their browser and on their computer. And, have them check their script filters, too. Third party cookies filtering, in a browser setting, is the most common solution. Filters are subject to update, by the creator. If the problem started a few days ago, your readers may have to look on their computers, and find out what product or accessory was updated, a few days ago."
I hope this helps. Using a different browser for a while was another suggestion.

All anonymous comments will be deleted.

If all else fails, you can contact me on my fb page or twitter.

Thanks to another increase in spam comments I have now added word verification on ALL posts.
