Victoria Plum helps the Badgers by Angela Rippon

Badgerland online shop

Content-Type Children's Fictional Story
Description This is the story of a sort of magical fairy-like creature called Victoria Plum who helps a family of badgers get ready for their winter hibernation (except that badgers do not hibernate!). I guess if you like the Victoria Plum series of books you will like this one. For us, it seems to have been written by an adult with very very old-fashioned views about families and badgers. As for it being a children's book, it certainly looks like one, but the complexity of the words used in the story doesn't really make it great for young children. It's sort of one step on from a baby book, with teenage words in it.
Summary If you like Victoria Plum it's great for you, but not one of our favourites.
