Timo is a rabbit who has an apple orchard in his yard. When his friend Hedgewick finds out that a famous food critic is coming to town, he wants to impress her with his cooking. Timo offers to host an apple festival for the whole town, and Hedgewick will be able to make all the food. Timo is very worried about hosting the party because he is afraid of big crowds and talking to strangers. It will be a lot of work to set up the apple festival. Will Timo be able to host the best apple festival Toadstool Corners has ever seen? Not without the help of his friends.
I loved Timo’s Party; it was amazing. I was so excited to review Timo’s Party because I have read the first Timo book, Timo’s Garden, and loved it. This book was just as good as the first Timo book. It is broken into short, easy-to-read chapters, with colorful illustrations. It is great for kids who are just starting chapter books. The illustrations are detailed, and I love how they show the expression on the characters’ faces. My only complaint is that I wish it was longer. I didn’t want Timo’s Party to end. I really hope Victoria Allenby will write more Timo books because I love them.
