Book Match Monday: She Rex and The Viking Who Liked Icing


It's been a while since we've joined in with the #Bookstagram challenge created by James of Mr Payne Reads on Instagram. This time, we're pairing She Rex by Michelle Robinson and Deborah Allwright with The Viking Who Liked Icing by Lu Fraser and Mark McKinley.


Both of these fantastic, funny and beautifully illustrated rhyming stories challenge gender stereotypes. They encourage little readers to like what they want to like, be who they want to be, and ignore limitations placed on them by others. Click on a cover take a closer look and find out why they make such a great couple...
