In Blow Your Nose, Big Bad Wolf! the three little pigs learn a lesson about spreading germs. When they won't lend the wolf a tissue, their houses are blown down by his sneezes! And to make matters worse, they then catch his cold.

Reviews

Another humorous story which takes a gentle approach towards teaching key concepts around good health. Big Bad is really a very friendly - and well brought-up - wolf. When he sees that the little pigs have tissues, he very politely asks for one - but perhaps you can guess what happens when he refuses? There's a lovely twist in the end of the tale which is very cleverly written. I love it! This is a superb series, especially useful for the infant classroom. Each book combines an enjoyable retelling of a fairytale with a message about healthy living, put across in a friendly and accessible way that will really make the message sink in Parents in Touch

Steve Smallman on Steve Smallman:

I started working as an illustrator when I was in my final year at Art College and now, over 28 years later I still haven't got a proper job! I've illustrated literally hundreds of books, predominantly in educational publishing. A few years ago I was main illustrator for Longman's 'Story Street' reading scheme, illustrating 79 titles and writing 5.

I've worked in children's television, specifically in character development and most notably in the 'Raggy Doll' series in the mid to late 1980's. I have also done a certain amount of licensed work, illustrating characters such as Postman Pat, Bill and Ben and Sesame Street.

I've been described as an 'Animal Artist', not I hasten to add because I'm wild and hairy but because I love to draw animals and especially like to give them human characteristics.

I've been writing children's books for about 6 years and have already had several picture books published with more in development.

I've got 4 great children and although they're all adults now, my memories of them growing up inspire and inform my writing.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
