July 2016 Book of the Month Picture book heroes come in all shapes and sizes but seldom has there been a pair of friends quite as eye-catching as Bug and his best friend Mammoth. With huge pink and orange ears, stripy top hat perched on his head at the jauntiest of angles, Mammoth fills every page, but the eye is drawn just as much to tiny pink and green Bug zipping across the busy spreads. Mammoth is so hungry he feels he’s fading away and no matter how much Bug finds for him to eat, it doesn’t seem to help. Finally they try a different tack altogether – one which might be familiar to parents – and it works. This zany story of friendship and fun is told via jolly rhymes and in the boldest, brightest, most flamboyant illustrations possible. Dazzling!

Synopsis

The Famishing Vanishing Mahoosive Mammoth by Hollie Hughes

'I'm so famishing I'm vanishing!' The famishing vanishing mahoosive mammoth is a hairy beast who simply can't think of anything but his tummy. So how, then, can his friend Bug distract him?

Find out in this hilarious rhyming picture book about one hairy mammoth with a ridiculously large appetite, and one loyal friend with a clever plan.

With oodles of fun and laughter, it's the perfect picture book for all fans of Julia Donaldson, Neal Layton, Alex T. Smith and Lauren Child.
