What is it about badgers? They seem to attract literary talent, providing young readers with memorable characters. There is Badger in The Wind in the Willows, of course and Bill Badger of the Wandering Wind. Now we have Mr Badger, the manager of Boubles Grand Hotel. In this position he has to negotiate many surprises and situations. Some of these are presented in this collection of four stories, ranging from organising a party for the dreadful Sylvia Smothers-Carruthers to coping with a Difficult Duchess. Written and illustrated by Leigh Hobbs in inimitable style, this is a lively addition to the list of books that are ideal for reading aloud at bedtime while also being ideal for younger readers who are confident and need more than a reading scheme. Full of gentle humour and the sort of detail that will enchant, the stories are relayed in the voice of a true storyteller; a voice that seems to speak directly to you alone. This is one to recommend.
