Let’s Find Mimi at Home: Katherine Lodge (Hodder Children’s Books, 2012)
Let’s Find Mimi in the City: Katherine Lodge (Hodder Children’s Books, 2013)
These two books have been popular ever since they arrived in the Chaos house. They are not be appearing on the Week in Books posts as often as they are looked at because I only add books that we read from start to finish as read that week. But these books are poured over several times a week, looking for new things in all the pictures. They are just brilliant.
Katherine Lodge comes from a family of artists. Sister Jo Lodge is also a huge favourite in this house, and based on the daughters I must look out for mother Maureen Roffey too! There are currently four Let’s Find Mimi books, and we were lucky enough to be sent two of them.
Let’s Find Mimi is a Where’s Wally with mice. Less cluttered than the Where’s Wally books these are suitable from a younger age, but are captivating for a large age range with so many details to look at. Mimi and her family are to be found on double page spreads on a theme, and there’s a rhyming story to read through too. Mimi always has her fairy wings on; brother Mac has a butterfly net; sister Molly has her toy duck; and there’s mum, dad, grandparents and auntie to find too. As well as finding the family, the cute and wonderfully detailed double spreads have lots of interesting things to look and talk about.
I can’t stress how much we love these books! Thoroughly recommended by both of the Chaos children, and mum too 🙂
