The BookViral Review:

Overcoming adversity is an ever-popular theme in children’s books and tales like Larry the Caterpillar’s Groovy Journey have a very special place in the genre. It’s a book that’s especially fun to read out loud with Wallace’s heartfelt prose tripping off the tongue whilst her delightful illustrations combine to bring Larry’s original little character to life.

Bravery and humility are qualities that connect and enrich our lives and Wallace’s story is perfectly pitched at young readers who are beginning to learn the value of overcoming the obstacles that life often presents whilst interacting with those who might be less than friendly!

On this level Larry the Caterpillar’s Groovy Journey proves a beguiling tale of wonder and delight, weaving deceptively simple words that never the less convey an extraordinary amount of emotion. Perfectly pitched for Wallace’s young audience the messages inside are both sensitive and clear. Imparting a life lesson that encourages children to develop positive social skills but equally as important encouraging them to communicate and be kind whilst developing their sense of self-esteem.

A wonderful heartwarming story which is perfect for bedtime reading, Larry the Caterpillar’s Groovy Journey will not only bring a smile to the faces of young readers but sure to be enjoyed by parents as well. It is definitely recommended.
