Unwrapping Some Illustration for You to Enjoy

Unwrapping the Story

Ceri & Deri are a brand new series of illustrated stories that kid's will delight in.  Ceri the cat and Deri the dog are fortunate enough to be very good friends.  One of their favourite places to haunt is Bryn's Sweet Shop.  Oh my... it is candy paradise!  Unfortunately they have no money to purchase any of the  candy so they just lovingly press their noses against the window and drool. 

Mr. Bryn comes out of the shop and offers the two some candy to share if they agree to take their noses off his window.  They heartily take his offer and quickly count out a total of 11 candies.  But how can you share 11 candies equally between two friends?  Dai the duck skateboards into the scene and claims that he would be more than happy to take the extra candy leaving an equal number for both Ceri and Deri to split between the two.  Then the fun begins...

Dai just keeps on munching the delectable candies that are dispensed to him by the generous givers and can you make a wild guess what happens?  

The illustrations are colourful, bright and expressive.  The book encourages sharing with others and its message is fun and relatable.  It is a wonderful introduction to the concepts of division and subtraction.  "Ceri & Deri": Good to Be Sweet" is great to read with younger kids and has an educational message to take away and discuss after the read.  I recommend this book.
