Madame Pamplemousse and the Time Travelling Cafe:
I bought this book because I adored the first book, 'Madame Pamplemousse and her Incredible Edibles' and I was not disappointed by the second. While the first is a gentle tribute to kindness and being your true self, 'Madame Pamplemousse and the Time Travelling Cafe' is a wild adventure/quest story, full of excitement, humour and fun. I love Rupert Kingfisher's fabulous poetic style and subversive wit. Both books also have really important messages for children with being remotely preachy. His baddies are awesome and remind me a bit the Roald Dahl baddies that we loved to hate so much when we were kids. I teach and my year 4/5 class were hooked- even the usually reluctant boys which made my life a hell of a lot easier! Encore Madame Pamplemousse Si vous plait! Sorry couldn't resist.Read moreLess

Madame Pamplemousse and her Incredible Edibles is a fabulous book. It is beautifully written and manages to be funny, wonderfully imaginative and kind to boot! His next book is out soon and I can't wait to read it. There is something very nourishing about this author's work.Read moreLess
