        Comments about The Big Book of Billie 2:

        My 6yo daughter has been asking me for a big thick book for a while now but most were too advanced for her. When she saw this big thick book (albeit containing 12 books) she was so excited! The large print makes it easy for new readers and the books themselves are fantastic. Many wonderful lessons within these stories make them great reading for children. Highly recommended.

                    This was a special gift for my grandaughter who I had already purchased a copy of The Big book of Billie B Brown 1 for as she had borrowed it so many times from the school library and I knew how she would really love her own copy-[was hard to locate a copy though because it is such a well loved book] she was excited to receive the 2nd Billie B book [ I pre-ordered so as to have a copy for her and not miss out]- Kayla loves them - she reads and reads them - she is 9 years old and is always reading - and these 2 books are very special to her book collection
