Longlisted for the UKLA 2017 Book Award This is a fantastically funny and completely clever new picture book from the critically-acclaimed pair behind The Pencil and The Runaway Dinner.

Synopsis

Alison Hubble by Allan Ahlberg

Alison Hubble is shocked when she wakes up to find a twin in the bed next to her. And she keeps doubling...and doubling...and doubling!

Reviews

A story in verse in picture book format with lots of colourful, quirky illustrations and speech bubbles. It's a madcap, hilarious adventure about Alison who doubled overnight and became a twin. Later that day: 'She doubled again/In seconds flat/Like magical rabbits/From a conjuror's hat.

! Plymouth five-year-olds, Eve, Niamh and William, loved it. 'Wow! There's so many of her she could fill all the seats in a train.

About the Author

Allan Ahlberg

As a child

Allan always dreamed of being a writer, but tried his hand at many other jobs before he achieved his ambition. He was a postman, grave-digger, plumber's mate and teacher - it was teaching that gave him such sharp insights into the minds of children, and enabled him to write his perfectly observed poetry about primary school life

Allan has collaborated with many illustrators, including Andre Amstutz, Gillian Tyler and Katharine McEwen, as well as his late wife, Janet Ahlberg (nee Hall) and his daughter Jessica Ahlberg. He has won numerous awards for his books including, the Kurt Maschler Award in 1986, The Children's Book Award in 1987, the Blue Peter Book Award 2001, and The Children's Book Award: Books for Young Children award 2002.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
