When you Give an Imp a Penny by Henry L Herz, Josh Herz and Harrison Herz

giveanimp.jpgWhen you Give an Imp a Penny is a beautiful book and an enchanting little tale.  This is a book by the same authors as the Monster Goose Nursery Rhymes that I reviewed here (basically a book written by Henry and his two sons).

When you Give an Imp tells a sweet tale about the implications of inviting an imp into your home.  Imps are mischievous little characters in fact the definition of an imp is either ‘a little devil or a mischievous child’ and I think that what the authors have achieved here is a perfect combination of the two.

I don’t review children’s books as a rule but the Monster Goose Nursery Rhyme book and this new book, I think, are beautiful stories and rhymes to read to your children.  The imp in this tale is a cute little character and the illustrations provided by Abigail Larson are beautiful.  Basically, I think, it’s a lovely little bedtime story that both parents and children can enjoy together.

I received this book for review by the author.  The above is my own opinion.

      It is – it’s only for youngsters though – a proper little bedtime story.

      No worries – although, you’ve made me realise I need to go and amend my review slightly because this really is for young children. The sort of book that you can go and read at bedtime.

        Okay, didn’t know whether I’d made it sound more like children’s literature akin to The Borrowers or Wizard of Oz. it’s a very charming read, beautifully illustrated and ends on a lovely note so it makes a perfect bedtime story for younger children.
