Brown bread and Honey
Brown bread and honey is an entertaining book that is written by Pamela Allen. It is about a spoilt King that eats and eats until he eventually gets sick.
The main character is the King. The King is spoilt because he demands all of his chefs cook him a fabulous feast that will make your tummy grumble. The King is also greedy because he eats all of the feast and never gives anything in return. He loves to jump, run and horse ride but throughout the story it is impossible to do all of these activities.
This book is fantastic because of its onomatopoeia, alliteration, easy to read, capital letters, punctuation and the illustrations. The onomatopoeia makes the reader entertained, for example: GULP! UGH! OOOOOH! URP! ARRH! The alliteration matches with the illustrations for example: milkshakes and muffins, puddings and pumpkins. The font of this book can be read easily. The capital letters tell the reader to emphasise the sentence such as: THE KING MANAGED TO EAT IT ALL!! The punctuation in this text
such as commas, exclamation marks and speech marks help you to know when to have a break, to emphasise your expression and to let you know when a character is speaking. The illustrations helps little kids predict what will happen in the story.
The moral of the story is to never eat too much or will regret it. Save all treats for last and start eating healthy food.
I recommend this magnificent book to school children because of its illustrations. If you like picture books and books that are easy to read then this is the perfect book for you. Remember don’t eat too much!
