ABBEY'S BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Two of my all-time favourite books for pre-schoolers are Janik's Rhymoceros, and Llamaphones, using a rhinoceros to illustrate rhymes, and a llama to explain homophones. This new book uses adjectives to compare one noun with another, using a colourful red, green and blue parrot. Messy has the parrot with one upturned tin of paint, but messier has the parrot with three tins and lots of splatter. Or fast is the parrot on a skateboard, but faster has it in a racing car. Inventive and imaginative, with a bright and simple style against clean white backgrounds and the occasional tactile element, this is another lovely book introducing linguistic concepts to youngsters.  Lindy

From the creators of Hippopposites, Rhymoceros, and Llamaphones comes a new board book about comparatives In this oversize board book, young readers will learn about comparative adjectives via a very humorous parrot-from noisy and noisier, to messy and messier, to happy and happier when it finally finds a friend. As with the previous books in the series, Comparrotives features surprising touch-and-feel novelty elements throughout-making the comparatives concept easy and fun to learn.

Reviews for Comparrotives (A Grammar Zoo Book)

**STARRED REVIEW** Coat's Artwork steals the show, cultivating a strong sense of emotion and movement out of simple, crisp shapes and bold colors. . .Funnier and cleverer than your average board book. -- Booklist
