  1. Jessica

    This is a lovely book to enjoy with young children. They really like Rodney and love looking at the pictures. Highly recommend

  2. Katie

    This is my second review for this great author. Rodney Seagull is well written, educational book with great rhymes, easy to learn and understand by children. Some pages have big key rhyme words which helps promote self reading. The story is very interesting and makes this enjoyable even for parents. My favourite part is the lesson learned at the end 😊

    This is my favourite story by Trudy Davidson so far. We can all relate to the seagulls by the beach wanting food. Great little story and my sons adore Rodney. A beautiful picture book that children will love to read.

  4. Mrs P Penfound

    This is a wonderful children’s book with great illustrations. I bought the book for my niece. She loved the story. It’s a lovely, entertaining and humorous tale about a hungry seagull. My niece enjoyed finding the crabs on each page. I would highly recommend to others

    Rodney is a likable character and definitely gives the humour touch.
    The story is easy to follow and written with lovely rhyme.

  9. Randy

    This is the second book we’ve purchased from this author and we love it as much as the first. The first thing that drew me to this book was the colorful cover. The illustrations are great. I also love the message in the book – being sweet and nice often gets you more treats than being aggressive! I will be gifting this book to the 3 year old I nanny for and I know he will love it.
