The Lovereading4Kids comment
A collection of nine absolutely charming short stories about friendship, dancing, memories, and lots of cake, all set in a wonderful world created by the author. This delightful title contains a forest, a river, an ocean, an oak tree and lots and lots of animals and of course a world of imagination where anything is possible. These wonderful whimsical animal tales are perfectly complemented by Jessica Ahlberg’s delicate illustrations in this collection of lyrical stories that will captivate readers of all ages.
A sister book to this beautifully packaged little gift hardback isLetters to Anyone and Everyone.
A message from Wendy Cooling, children’s books author and editor:
‘Toon’s stories are beautifully told, quirky, and delightful, and have the warmth of the wonderful Pooh stories. Jessica Ahlberg’s illustrations perfectly complement the mood of the writing, they’re a joy!’
The Squirrel's Birthday and Other Parties by Toon Tellegen
A whale and a seagull dance silently on a moon-drenched beach. A grasshopper pays a fortune for a speck of dust. A squirrel and an ant discover a mysterious feast, with an invisible host, in the depths of a forest. In his philosophical animal tales, Toon Tellegen creates surreal stories and charming characters that will capture the imaginations of readers everywhere. Perfectly complemented by Jessica Ahlberg's delicate illustrations, this collection of short stories is intelligent, moving and funny.
