Another really lovely edition to add to the Hokey Pokey collection. The illustrations are very charming and colourful as before and the verse clever and inspiring. My boys absolutely love these books, I can't recommend them highly enough.
Hokey Pokey Pig & The Pogs, the second installment of the Hokey Pokey Pig series from author Deborah Elias, is a wonderfully rhymed bedtime treat. Neve and her best friend, Hokey Pokey Pig, embark on a journey that captures the minds of young readers and provides an answer for "What in the world does the Tooth Fairy do with my teeth?" She sells them of course!
Deep in the forest live little troll like beings known as Pogs. There the Pogs grow money on trees in order to buy teeth from the Tooth Fairy and turn them into stars that "light up the sky." The story is filled with the characters' delight as they jump and they dance, partake in tea and tarts, and party in the dark with the Pogs and the baby bees they care for.
The vibrant illustrations convey the jubilance on the turn of every page. Every read of the book becomes more enchanting as the musicality of the rhymes combined with the dance of the images begin to form song. The land of the Pogs is a place we would all like to visit, and children everywhere will enjoy reading this charming tale over and over again.
