Our Review Panel says...

All the fun of You Choose is met with a new dollop of imaginative charm in Nick Sharratt’s Super Silly Museums. This bright and colourful picturebook with fold-out flaps takes the reader on a journey through a host of whimsical fictional museums. Once you get started, there’s no stopping the imagination when it comes to museum types. Young readers will love the snoozeum filled with sleeping animals, the confuseum of optical illusions and the shoe-seum featuring an alphabet of footwear. Those who love a bit of toilet humour will be drawn to the pooseum (exhibiting of unusual toilets and a ‘wee-search’ centre), while readers who prefer getting to grips with new words will enjoy poring over the Q-seum. There’s plenty to entertain and amuse under the museum flaps and there’s lots of information to absorb among the labelled exhibitions too. Right at the end of the book, the author sets up a ‘You-seum’, to be completed by the reader. Nick Sharratt’s wit and illustrative flair makes the book oodles of fun for young and old and will no doubt spark additional hours of entertainment as readers make up their own museum types or add ideas to the existing exhibitions. Just like You Choose, many readers will be drawn into simply poring over the bright and busy pages, noticing details, identifying personal preferences and taking in the variety of different items on display. A perfect book for sharing. Reviewer: Alison Leach
