Review: 'Stanley the Builder' by William Bee

Stanley the Builder by William Bee, 2014, Peachtree, $14.95, hardbound, 26 pages. Category/Genre: mainstream. Cover: neat. Where we got it: publisher. Where you can get it: Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books-A-Million.

This neat little book will engage younger readers who need simple language and a mild introduction to colour.

In this tale, Myrtle the mouse asks Stanley the hamster to build her a new house on the plot of land she's just bought. With the help of Charlie (another mouse), Stanley clears the land, builds the house, and makes the home beautiful for his friend Myrtle. 

At the beginning of the book are a couple of pages filled with pictures of colourful tools. Kids who love tools and building will love this book and Stanley.
