With opening flaps and a final, magnificent picture which opens out completely, this is a wonderful illustrated version of a classic poem. Jim has everything he wants – delightfully tactile ‘slices of delicious ham’ and ‘chocolate, with pink inside’, a little tricycle to ride and trips to the zoo – but none of these are enough to stop Jim from indulging in his favourite little foible: running away! Jim escapes from the hand of his nurse and meets a very desperate fate!
Award-winning illustrator Mini Grey turns her inimitable hand to Hilaire Belloc's classic cautionary tale of Jim. First published in 1907, Belloc's wickedly funny poem describing the sad end of Jim is now brought fabulously back to life with wonderful pop-ups and interactive extracts by Mini Grey for this extra-special new edition for a new generation og children and parents. This is a perfect gift with much to explore...
