The Lovereading4Kids comment

Winner of the Baby Book Award, Early Year Awards 2009

A stylishly simple pop-up takes a tiny chick from the moment it pecks its way out of its shell to its first night sleeping safely under Mum’s wing. Little fingers will love the big, bold illustrations of the loveable little chick.


Chick by Ed Vere

It's time for Chick to meet the world! Join in the fun as he emerges from his egg and meets his mummy. Follow him through his very first day - right up until he snuggles down under his mum's wing at bedtime. In a clever parallel to the daily routine and anxieties of a toddler, this funny and delightful novelty combines Ed's signature bold colours, lovable characters and graphic simplicity.

Seven kinetic pop-ups move from the spine of the book as the pages are turned making this clever novelty strong and sturdy for the very young.
