Matt Lucas is an actor and comedian who is well-known for his TV work and growing body of books.
At the start of the month, he released a very very very very very very very silly book of games and to celebrate he has listed his favourite five books for kids.
Rabunzel by Gareth P Jones, illustrated by Loretta Schauer
You’ve heard of Rapunzel – the fairy tale about a girl with lots and lots of hair (too much if you ask me). What’s better than a princess in a tower? A kung fu bunny rabbit with very long ears… in a tower.
A picture book that packs a punch right to the funny bone.
Nursery? Not Today! by Rebecca Patterson, illustrated by Nikki Dyson
As many kids head to nursery for the first time, this funny story will ease their worries and fill them with confidence (and make nervous parents feel a bit better too). And dog-lovers like me will adore Rosa, the cute pug at the heart of the story.
Monster Hunting for Beginners by Ian Mark
Myths, monsters and awful aunties. A stonking adventure. We join Jack as he becomes apprentice to a 200-year-old monster hunter called Stoop.
