As a school teacher, I'm always talking to the students about consent - so when I saw this book I jumped at the chance to read an early review copy. I wasn't expecting the book to be so long!! When it says it's about consent - literally that is it - for almost 200 pages!! I think this book really dragged at times, and would have been so much better if it was 100 pages, and just more concise. The book is aimed at 9-12 year olds, and I honestly can't see this age group reading every page! The book is informative - but just so repetitive because of how long it is! The illustrations are great, and do help somewhat to break up all the text. Overall this is a good book - but just think it's far too long and draggy. More precise and concise would have been a lot better!
