Bamboozled by David Legge
Published by Scholastic Australia
The children's classic Bamboozled by the marvellous David Legge has been re-released in a special 21st anniversary limited edition. The simple text, accompanied by very whacky pictures, with more then a touch of the surrealist style, is still as entertaining today as it was in 1994.
This timeless story follows the visit of a young girl to her grandfathers. As they carry out an ordinary afternoon, we are drawn into a home that has its carpets are being mowed, lions being fed in a highchair, a watering can is being used for a tea pot and mice are riding in yogurt tub hot hair balloons, just to name a few. While the narrative is short, each page can be poured over time and time again to find all the strange occurrences within.
Highly recommended for pre-schoolers and emergent readers alike.
