Jodie Parachini: Flicker’s Garden Rescue

Today I’m taking part in the blog tour for Flicker’s Garden Rescue. I’m joined once again by my very special guest reviewer, Joe, who’s 3. Our review is written with thanks to Rachel Gilbey at Rachel’s Random Resources for inviting us on the blog tour and to the publisher for our copy of the book.


Flicker and her friends discover how helping others can be fun.

Queen Bee can’t stop sneezing, so she won’t be able to oversee the pollination of all the fruit and vegetables in the garden this year. Not only does this mean there won’t be a Garden Party, it also means there won’t be any yummy food. Flicker and her friends help save the party—and the food.


Flicker’s Garden Rescue is a beautifully written book which explains the process of pollination to young children really well with an engaging story. We did have to simplify some of the ideas for Joe, who is 3, which suggests it’s aimed at a slightly older audience. However, his interest was maintained throughout and he was able to recount parts of the story to other people. 

The illustrations in this story are absolutely wonderful and the artist is incredibly talented. Joe enjoyed being able to spot different plants and animals from the pictures to enhance his understanding of the story. 

Joe said “I enjoyed this book. I liked the characters. I liked looking at the pictures and finding all the animals.”

Flicker’s Garden Rescue is available from Amazon.
