Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book in return for my book review. All views expressed by myself are my own and unbiased.
Welcome to the world of Ting-a-Ling. The friendliest old ambulance there ever was. With line drawn illustrations for YOU to
colour in helping you to familiarise yourself personally, with Ting-a-Ling, his owner and restorer Alf, his mum, and Mr .Grimsby the
boss of the big ambulance station. Open the cover and jump into a whole NEW world of ambulance stories and adventures.
Designed in a quirky style encompassing story telling entertainment colouring and education suitable for both younger readers and adults alike. Truly an all in one compendium. Just like the filling in a sandwich, the best bit’s inside.
Simple and easy to read. The stories are written with a smattering of comical northern dialect in bite size chapters so as not to be taxing on the brain.
Have difficulty in reading? Written by a dyslexic who knows what a struggle it can be. This book really is here to help YOU!
If Ting-a-Ling had wings I would say welcome to the flying start. This book is the first in a series in the making where you will meet Ting-a-Ling and his friends.
TRY ME. If not for yourself. Think of someone else. Possibly a little person who the stories are written for.
You will love Ting-a-Ling. EVERYONE does!
Ting-a-ling, the old ambulance is a fun and quirky book which focuses on the renovation and following love for an old forgotten ambulance. The book is split into two short stories, each with a couple of chapters allowing for ease of splitting at bedtime if needed (if you can stand to put it down that is!)
I love the quirky illustrations throughout the book which are left intentionally blank for YOU to colour! A much loved added bonus, especially for my eldest.
The style of writing is also lovely and has a wonderful tone that is fun and easy to read, with a smattering of northern phases leading to comical attempts at accents on my part (more fun for the kids eh!).
Overall I really enjoyed Ting-a-Ling and hope there are many more adventures to follow in the future x
