Hold That Thought Milton! is a humorous picture book written by award winning author Linda Ravin Lodding.
It is fun to read aloud to children of all ages, and the enjoyment of the comical story is enhanced by Ross Collins’ quirky illustrations.
Milton is a young boy who has many things on his mind and a lot to say. But everyone in his family is too busy to listen to him, and they just keep telling him to “Hold that thought!” So he tries, but it’s not easy, and his thoughts begin to have a strange effect on him. The story reaches a hilarious climax on his Aunt Lulu’s wedding day.
All the children liked the story and Tiddler asked for it again straight away. Rabbit wanted to pose with the book, while Monkey had fun taking pictures of the illustrations – I am sure he and Owl will have their own blogs before too long!
We have been sent a free copy of the book for the purpose of this review.
