Review: Stoyle the Gumtree Gargoyle: AaaaCHoooo!

by

All my kids love books. It is a challenge to walk past a bookshop without getting a few books to take home. Do you have the same problem?

So with our love of books, it was a joy to read a fun book called, “Stoyle the Gumtree Gargoyle: AaaaCHooo, by Rebecca Rosengrave.

Stoyle the Gumtree Gargoyle. A fab kids book from Rebecca Rosengrave.

Rebecca is an author and illustrator that lives in Canberra. In fact, she was also born there as well. Her first book for kids is Stoyle the Gumtree Gargoyle and showcases the city of Canberra.  It gives readers more appreciation for the Capital of Australia.

The book has been published independently and all by Rebecca. Yes, she is a publisher as well!

What is Stoyle the Gumtree Gargoyle: AaaaCHooo about?

Stoyle is a gargoyle that is suffering from severe hayfever. Yes, he is struggling to do anything.  Bankisia-Bloom-Day and Faye are bush fairies and are Stoyle’s friends. They try and help him out but until his mum comes up with the magic fix (hayfever medicine) he suffers from the sneezes and upset of hayfever.

Such expressive illustrations. Fun and colourful for kids.

The bush fairies and Stoyle fly around Canberra and you get to see Parliment House and National Carillon building.

The pictures are wonderful, so expressive, fun, bright and kids will think they are so funny as well.

It is lovely to read a book from a local author and illustrator.

I also find it amazing that Rebecca is self-published.  I am sure that there will be more Stoyle stories to come and more adventures around Canberra.
