A Deal's a Deal
by Stephanie Blake
Age Range: Under_5
Simon and his friend Ferdinand are playing with their toy cars. Simon has three cars, a yellow one, a blue one and a green one. Ferdinand only has one red car, but he tells Simon that it is very special. Simon has always wanted a red car and when he sees it he decides he must have it. Ever the wheeler-dealer, Simon starts to negotiate with Ferdinand but gets more than he bargains for when he swops his three cars for Ferdinand’s red one. Now Simon must use all his skills to persuade his friend to give him back his three cars in return for the red one!
Another funny picture book from Stephanie Blake in the series about the adorable rabbit Simon featured in the bestselling Poo Bum (2012) and Stupid Baby (2013).
A Deal’s a Deal tackles friendship, rivalry, playing, sharing and negotiating. It is an excellent read-aloud book with eye-catching, bold illustrations. The surprise ‘yucky’ ending will create a lot of giggles from young readers too.
