Based on the well know song made famous by Louis Armstrong, this lovely picture book follows the adventure of a little boy as he discovered the miraculous world in which he lives. Bursting with colour and exquisitely illustrated by Tim Hopgood.


What a Wonderful World Hardback & CD by Bob Thiele, George David Weiss

A truly special book featuring the lyrics from the world famous song, What a Wonderful World, accompanied by beautiful illustrations from Tim Hopgood. This picture book follows a young boy on a wondrous journey through our beautiful world and the book comes well and truly to life with an accompanying CD which includes the much-loved recording of the song by Louis Armstrong and an exclusive reading by Sophie Aldred.


'Every page is so lovely, so appealing, it demands long, close attention.'

'Reading the words in print, rather than simply hearing them, made me think much more about what the song says to us about the wonders of our world and the importance of love.'

'The words are enriched by gorgeous illustrations.'

'Pages are full of life, colour, design flourishes... and wonders'

'The bright colourful illustrations wonderfully capture the lyrics, and it's just gorgeous... This fantastic book will bring a smile to the faces of child and parent alike.'
