The Lovereading4Kids comment

The inimitable Jeanne Willis turns her attention to sibling rivalry in this witty and original picture book. Little Brother wants to play but Big Brother is determined to keep the treehouse all to himself so sends Little Brother off on a series of increasingly difficult tasks, only to be amazed and frustrated when Little Brother – cheerful and resourceful – brings him everything he’s asked for, from unicorn to Triceratops! But even Little Brother is stumped when Big Brother asks for a Snappenpoop. The fairytale set up builds to a surprising and satisfying conclusion that cleverly delivers a message for brothers (and sisters) everywhere, big and small. Matt Saunders’s illustrations are a delight too, bold, confident and he rises magnificently to the challenge of illustrating a Snappenpoop! ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

There's No Such Thing as a Snappenpoop by Jeanne Willis

A wonderfully unique story from award-winning author Jeanne Willis (The Bog Baby, The First Slodge). Packed with magical creatures and bossy siblings, this delightfully wicked cautionary tale is set to become a children's favourite. With stunning artwork from debut picture book illustrator Matt Saunders.

Little Brother wants to join in the fun with his sibling, but Big Brother won't let him play. Fetch me a Snappenpoop! says Big Brother. Then you can play ... But everybody knows there's no such thing as a Snappenpoop ... or IS there?
