Who can resist a peep through Timothy Pope’s brand new telescope? What can you see? Could it be the Shark in the Park? It’s amazing what you can see as you look through the clever cut outs in this brightly coloured board book. Dare to scared by taking a peep…and enjoy all the things which turn out to be harmless, too.

Reviews

This crafty interactive picture book is 100% bliss and very toothsome indeed . . . The very young will enjoy all the changes of perspective and the jokes . . . A book that will have them squealing with delight -- Lyn Gardner * Guardian * The hole in the page in Shark in the Park is the best use of this apparently simple device since PEEPO! by Janet and Allan Ahlberg. Sharratt's upbeat illustrations and rhyming, rhthymical text . . . Simple and satisfying, with audience participation guaranteed -- Jill Slotover * Financial Times *

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.
