The Lovereading4Kids comment
In their second adventure, Harry and Lil must work out what on earth is making the Hullabaloo outside Harry’s window in the middle of the night. When deep sleeping Harry is woken by a strange noise, he calls on Lil for help. But every time they think they’ve cracked it, outside is a new nocturnal animal making a different sound. If it’s not just Frog, or just Badger, or just Owl, what could it be?
The Hog, the Shrew and the Hullabaloo by Julia Copus
It was night in the village - a still, dark night - and Harry the Hog was sleeping tight. In her house at the foot of Piggyback Hill, also asleep, was Candy Stripe Lil. The second Harry and Lil story from acclaimed Faber poet Julia Copus, who has recently turned her hand to picture books for the first time! The tale of a hog - and his friend Candy Stripe Lil - kept awake by mysterious noises in the night is sure to delight adults and children alike.
Praise for Hog in the Fog:
‘A perfect combination of clever rhymes and beautiful illustrations.' Sunday Express
‘An exquisite rhyming tale about a hapless hog who gets lost in the fog. Beautiful illustrations.’ Angels and Urchins
‘Julia Copus is an accomplished poet, and in Hog in the Fog, illustrated by Eunyoung Seo, she shows what she can do, in lively rhyme, for a young audience’ Observer
‘Take a smidgeon of "The Gruffalo", add a tiny pinch of "Foggy Foggy Forest" and some truly charming artwork, and you're half way towards imagining how great "Hog in the Fog" is.’ Read it Daddy!
‘'A Julia-Donaldson-style rhyming text that works brilliantly for young children ...I'm assuming that this is the first in I can't wait for the next one!’ Serendipity Reviews
