Don’t Put Your Finger in the Jelly, Nelly!  by Nick Sharratt

Brought to you by Owl Readers Club


It’s never easy when you only have to choose one book for a book review and we were really at a wit’s end as to which book we would feature this month.

Thankfully our son decided to “take the matter in his own hands” or “fingers” by his relentless request for us to read the “Jelly” book to him night after night for close to a week now.

Don’t Put Your Finger in the Jelly, Nelly! is a book that is almost impossible to review and we would not have even considered reviewing it if not for our son and the fact that the book is written and illustrated by the multi-award winning Nick Sharratt.

To be brutally honest about it, it is hardly a story book but one that reinforces the message in the most ridiculous (but somewhat unforgettable) manner of what happens when you stick your fingers into different food. The specially designed cut-outs in the books enables you or your little ones to stick a finger in and laugh out loud at what happens when you turn the page.

The great appeal of this book is its simplicity and its ability to create an impression in the minds of little ones. Own this book at your own peril for if your little one is anything like ours, you will constantly have to read this book to him or her! Nevertheless, the joy of watching your little one tickled and laughing would alleviate any concerns about how silly the book is!
