The Lovereading4Kids comment

A witty and charming story which strikes a cautionary note about greed, the hero of which is a warm-hearted guinea pig called Christopher Nibble. Heroism comes in many shapes and sizes and Christopher Nibble’s determination to bring back dandelions to Dandeville is a great example of it. Like all the inhabitants of Dandeville Christopher Nibble’s favourite food is dandelion. But when the dandelions run out it is Christopher Nibble who’s thoughtful and brave action brings them back. The author’s witty and quirky story has also been illustrated by her with charming collage illustrations and without a doubt her guinea pigs are some of the most endearing, rather funky little characters you are ever likely to meet.


Christopher Nibble by Charlotte Middleton

The guinea pigs of Dandeville love munching dandelion leaves so much that dandelions are disappearing from all over town. Christopher Nibble knows that crunch time has come when there's just one dandelion left - but will this plucky little guinea pig have the flower power to save the day? An eco-friendly tale to entertain the youngest readers.

About the Author

Charlotte Middleton

Charlotte Middleton’s childhood guinea pigs are the inspiration for Christopher Nibble! At school, Charlotte loved drawing and would regularly illustrate her spelling and times tables test papers. She went on to study Graphic Art and Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Her first book, Tabitha’s Terrifically Tough Tooth, was published in 1998 and since then she has written and illustrated more than a dozen books. Her stories have been sold all over the world and Charlotte would love to be as well-travelled as her books one day.
