Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Nick Sharratt’s big and bold illustrations leap off the page and delight very young readers with their cheerful simplicity. The sounds of lots of different noises are celebrated in Toddle Waddle as a toddler takes a simple stroll to the end of the pier and lots of others follow, greedy animals tuck into delicious plates of food at the lovely meal where manners don’t matter in Chocolate Mousse for Greedy Goose.
