The Importance of Being Ernest the Earwig Summary

The Importance of Being Ernest the Earwig Reviews

The Importance of Being Ernest the Earwig is an excellent story that will inspire children young and old about reading and introduce an interest in classical literature. I loved that the author uses styles of illustrations from original publications of stories such as Wind in the willows, Cinderella and Treasure island to help to really give the impression of Earnest being part of these classic tales. The beautiful illustrations add hugely to this book and are a great talking point throughout the story. I think that this book would lend itself really well to use during world book week and as a way of introducing classic literature to children. I loved the play of words - for example, the title of Oscar Wild's play - and I think this could create a fantastic hook to getting children to put themselves into classic stories. I really enjoyed this story and will look forward to reading it right across the primary age range. -- Marie Berry * Reading Zone *
All sorts of creatures have books written about them, so why not earwigs, thinks Ernest, and he determines to put that right. The results are unexpected... and hilarious. To redress the balance, Ernest visits the bookshop and finds his way into the pages of his favourite books - there's The Wind in the Willows, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and many more books which children will love to find through the pages of this unusual book. Superbly illustrated by Lindsay Branagh, this is an unusual and intriguing book which makes a refreshing change. * Parents In Touch *
