Arthur and the Golden Rope Book Review

Firstly I want to say that Flying Eye Books always blow me away. When The Journey arrived on my doorstep I was left speechless at its beauty (see my review of The Journey here). The books are always stunning, both visual and storytelling elements are constantly gorgeous and immediately engaging.

When we were offered the chance to review Arthur and the Golden Rope by Joe Todd Stanton, I jumped at the opportunity. When it arrived, I was once again left feeling a little speechless. The quality of the book, the illustrations and the interesting story telling blew me away.

We snuggled up that very evening to read the adventures of Arthur, and we were left feeling very impressed! The sweet tale of tiny Arthur, who spends his time lost in the woods with various creatures, is suddenly thrown into the world of being a hero. He must track down Thor and save his village before it's too late.

This book is a very lovely read. It offers a lot of information, the illustrations are rich and full of character, and both children sat through me reading it without so much as a fidgety foot. Of course, there were lots of questions during and afterwards, but these questions should be embraced. A book isn't something to rush through and put away. Pages should be poured over, questions asked and answered, after all you are entering another world when you open that very first page.


We adored Arthur, he was cute and quirky, and both kiddies agreed on their favourite part of the book when Arthur sets off to sea to find Thor. George had a go at drawing the scene too!

I think this book is definitely one we will go back to time after time. You can get a copy from Flying Eye Books for £12.99 from September 2016.


Disclosure: We were given this book in exchange for review. All opinions are 100% honest and my own.
