Mabel and the Sock Pirates - Elwyn Tate

Score:  5/5

First Sentence: Up on a hill lived a farmer called Bill...and a black and white cat called Mabel.

Summary: 
Mabel is a cat who lives on a farm by the sea... but not just any old farm... Mabel's farm has some very special trees... Trees unlike you have ever seen before.

Can be purchased as an ebook for 99 cents or $9.99 paperback OR free if you're using Kindle Unlimited.

Good:


Colorful, cute illustrations. The writing is apart of the illustrations. There are pirates who want to steal their magical tree socks! This is everything and simply adorable.

You can follow along with what is happening with the pictures. Definitely a lovely picture book. Absolute use of pretend play and silliness. New words to introduce to kids.

Bad:


The words go with the illustration so this is definitely needed to read by an adult or a serious kid reader. 
Example from the book:
 

The words are cut off due to how I snipped it to add in here. Words are perfectly situated and can be read in the actual book. 

Recommend:

Completely 100% recommend this. It was adorable from beginning to end.
