The Snugglewump by Lou Treleaven Review


The Snugglewump, written by Lou Treleaven and illustrated by Kate Chappell, is a tale about a child’s toys and which one sees themselves as the most loved, or not!

Molly has lots of toys and she loves to play with them all. While waiting for her to come home and play with them the toys start talking about which one is her favourite and the most loved. They all believe they are the favourite and offer the reasons why. Poor old Snugglewump is just a blanket, with no moving parts or batteries, so feels left out, unloved and unwanted. The Snugglewump quietly sneaks off outdoors as he believes if he were something else he would be much more loved. But will Molly miss Snugglewump and will it find its way home?

The Snugglewump is an engaging story about self-discovery, love and belonging. Written with flowing rhyming text it is an engaging story that children will love. it has just enough words on each page to hold any child’s attention. Beautifully illustrated with light and dark colours, it complements the story very well and brings it to life.

The Snugglwump is a sweet story that children will enjoy.
