From The Bookshelf // Marge and the Secret Tunnel

May 14, 2018

Last year we introduced the Isla Fisher Marge in Charge range of books to Tigger. As he started his journey into the world of chapter books and ones that last longer than a dozen pages. The previous Marge in Charge books had him giggling along as we read the adventures of Marge and her antics. Life with Marge is NEVER boring! She has rainbow hair, goes skiing in the summer and is the best babysitter you could wish for.

Marge and the Secret Tunnel

Life with Marge is NEVER boring! Even shopping for new shoes turns out to be an amazing adventure, especially when the lights go out and the children are stuck in the shop! And when Jakey decides he’d like to visit Australia, Marge has the best idea ever. She and the children will dig a tunnel and visit a completely different country…

The Marge and the Secret Tunnel continues the theme of the previous books, in which each book features three stories in one. Offering manageable stories for school-age children whilst still offering them the excitement they are looking for within the plot line.

  • Marge and the Secret Tunnel
  • Marge and the Great Shopping Race
  • Marge and the Lost Kitten

With quirky illustrations throughout the book to add that extra slice of interest and bring parts of the story to life. Isla has a way of making whoever is reading the story become part of the adventure. Marge is funny and outrageous, and who wouldn’t want her as their babysitter.
