A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month January 2018

Celebrating thirty-five best-selling years, Whatever Next! is a classic story of a child’s imaginative adventure. It’s bath time for Baby Bear but he is determined to fit in a quick trip to the moon beforehand. Can he do it? Sure he can. Finding a space rocket under the stairs, a helmet in the kitchen and some boots by the door Baby Bear is soon off and away floating high in the sky, up through the stars and all the way to the moon. A gloriously imaginative story brought to life in Jill Murphy’s wonderful illustrations. ~ Julia Eccleshare
