A house for Donfinkle

ChoeChoe Brereton, illustrated by Wayne Harris
Walker Books Australia
ISBN: 9781921720536           RRP: $24.95

When a Flooble, a Mooble, a Gooble and a Blooble offer suggestions for creative improvements to the house that Donfinkle Vonkrinkle has built, he is unimpressed. He is proud of its divine door and pine porch – and wants it all back. The rhyming text bubbles along with musical tongue trippers: A bothersome taunt full of troublesome talk. The illustrations are done digitally, in colours that are sunny but subdued. The imaginary creatures will tickle the humour of young readers.
