Jonathan By Peter Carnavas

This book celebrates kids love of dressing up in character and catching you unawares with a “Boo”. There’s a shout out to grandads at the end too.

Looks like we’ve dropped in at Jonathan’s place on a busy weekend morning. Dad’s cleaning, sister’s still sleeping and mum’s hanging washing.

Jonathan jumps out from his hiding spots in cool costumes but fails to scare his family members.

Discouraged, he walks away but finds the perfect creature for a scare, a dinosaur! It’s grandad in disguise. Good on grandad, and watch out mum, dad and sis!


Minimal writing on each page, easy to read rhymes, and big clear pictures in lovely bright colours make this one a very simple sweet read.

Suggested age: Read aloud to 3+. Read by self 5+. Recommended for a beginner reader.
