Ralphina, the Roly-Poly by Claudia Chandler

Stars: ***

I received this book from the author through Bostick Communications.

Ralphina, The Roly-Poly is a hardcover picture book about a little Roly-Poly named Ralphina. Roly=Polies are also known as Potato Bugs which is what I know them as. I must say I can’t think of a single book that has a potato bug/roly poly as it’s character!

Ralphina is lonely and wants the little boy who lives in the house to be her friend. What can she do to get him to notice her? Well she succeeds at that and proceeds to tell her new little friend all about Roly-Polys. I must say I learned quite a bit!

The story is really cute and at the end you’ll find more facts about both roly-polys and rainbows (Ralphina paints the tulips all the colours of the rainbow.)

Claudia Chandler wrote and illustrated the book and so the illustrations are very sweet drawings, done in coloured pencils I believe.
