I am honoured to be part of the Goddess Fish Blog Tour for Renee James’s children’s book, Patroosh, the Hungry Pelican, which I read and am now reviewing.
(Please note: I received a free copy in exchange for my honest review.)
Patroosh, The Hungry Pelican is a humorous children’s book about 2 bird friends. It offers children a fun book about sharing, picky appetites, friendship and perseverance.
The illustrations, by Bonnie Lemaire, engage the reader with their bright colours and funny scenes.
I am sure young children will enjoy the adventures of Patroosh and his seagull friend Seamus.
Guest Post – Meet My Two Main Characters
With my second book in the Patroosh series, Patroosh, the Hungry Pelican. I am thrilled to introduce you to the latest adventure of these two charming feathered friends.
Using my passion for storytelling and communication, I have brought these hilarious characters to life. Patroosh, the Pelican, and Seamus the Seagull were inspired by our family’s experiences at our local beach. Through their lively adventures, children can learn important values such as kindness, sharing, perseverance, and friendship.
Along with my love for creativity, I have a background in communications and commercial television. I am the founder of Mystery Lane Media, a video production company, and the creator of Patroosh, the Pelican, an online shop. When I’m not busy creating content, I love spending time with my family, which includes my adorable pups and bunnies. Travelling, enjoying the beach, and spending time during story-time are some of my favourite pastimes.
I love that you are a believer in “all things possible” and I feel much the same way which is I absolutely love writing children’s picture books. There’s something truly magical about the imaginative world that comes to life during story time. Hearing from families and classrooms who enjoy my books brings me pure joy and gratitude. It’s a dream come true to share my stories and bring happiness to others.
Without further ado, allow me to introduce you to Patroosh the Pelican and Seamus the Seagull as they embark on a lunchtime adventure. I hope you enjoy reading this book as much as I enjoyed writing it. If you know any fussy eaters, I hope this story sparks some fun conversations about their food preferences.
Pancakes, milkshakes, fish and chips galore… Patroosh the hungry pelican will enjoy all four. Especially if there’s ketchup he can pour.
With Seamus the seagull by his side, always there to help decide.
Will these two feathered friends find what they want for lunch?
They’re feeling peckish and do enjoy a good munch.
What could be in store for diners today at their favourite marina café?
Patroosh, the pelican, and Seamus, the seagull, are bobbing along, paddling their feet and singing their boisterous bird song. SQUAWK SQUAWK SQUAAAAAAAAWK.
Ah, this is the life,” bursts out Seamus with glee, then Patroosh does something funny, yelling,
“Look at me, look at me!
