Book Review: Funnybones by Allan Ahlberg - Reviewed by Sheepcoate (22 Apr 2013)
Mystery Tour was a fun book to read and interactive for the young listener. A group of skeletons go out for a drive a Mystery Tour. As they drive a around they see various items and you have to guess what it is. There is a certain amount of repetition in the book which children will enjoy and guessing the mystery item is fun.
The illustrations are basic and simplistic but nicely done as too compliment the story. They are not to scary considering the subject matter of the undead characters. Overall a fun book and nice and easy to read of the early reader.
