We introduced Littlenose to you last month and we hope you enjoyed his escapades.

For boys and girls just starting out on reading and looking for plenty of adventure you can’t get much better than this.


Littlenose the Hunter by John Grant

Another collection of stories about the terrible two-some! It's time for Littlenose to learn a little responsibility - so he goes hunting with the adults and is told to build the campfire. Chaos ensues when he stokes the fire a little TOO enthusiastically, but as ever he manages to redeem himself. In other stories, Littlenose manages to catch a huge salmon all by himself (but somewhat loses his appetite for it), and goes on an expedition to collect yellow bogweed from across the marsh. He also has a holiday with his clever Uncle Redhead (who turns out to have A LOT to talk about), and goes to visit his cousins - who are scared of Bigfoot! Also, Two-Eyes loses his patience when Littlenose pelts him with berries (a mammoth, like an elephant, never forgets): but how will he get his revenge?
