Katie and the Giant Problem Written by Richard Parr Illustrated by Monika Suska A delightful tale of adventure, problem solving and time travel. Katie, together with her well-loved but rather worn toy dog Penny, embark on their first adventure to solve a Giant Problem. It was my daughter Caitlin’s 5th Birthday when she asked me to make up a bedtime story instead of reading one of hers. Looking at me with her big blue eyes, how could I refuse? Ideal for all ages up to 7. The main Characters are Katie (inspired by my daughter) and her sidekick Penny, a soft toy dog. This tale of adventure, problem solving and time travel begins when Katie is given two very special gifts on her 5th birthday by her Nana. Together with important instructions from her Nana, these gifts will take Katie and Penny to magical lands where they must solve a problem before it’s time to go home. These books are beautifully illustrated with full colour pages, hand-painted by Monika Suska. Katie is a strong heroic female character, who sees the fun in every challenge she and Penny face together. These tales have good values and lessons for the young reader.
