The Lovereading4Kids comment
A delightfully funny story coupled with some charming illustrations tells the story of two children on a beach who find a telescope. They’re determined to find out who the telescope belongs to and it involves looking at everyone’s bottoms to see if it matches the bottom print in the sand next to the telescope...
Picture Kelpies: The Big Bottom Hunt by Lari Don
Sandy and Ella are out playing on the beach one day when they spot something sparkling by the jaggy rocks. They run over to see what it is, and find a telescope that someone has left behind. But how will they find the owner? Then they see a funny shape in the sand - and realise it's a bottom print! They run back home for their art kit and trace the print. Then the big bottom hunt begins, as they ask each villager in turn, 'Is this your bottom?' A delightful and very funny story from Edinburgh writer and storyteller Lari Don, illustrated with great charm by up-and-coming illustrator Gabby Grant.
'Excellent bedtime or early reader. Beautifully told and illustrated, (and children really enjoy the fact 'bottoms'
'The Big Bottom Hunt by Lari Don is a delight. There will be giggles of glee as Sandy and Ella set off on their quest to discover whose bottom has left an imprint in the sand!'
'Playing detectives is great fun, and the repetition of the word bottom - plus delightfully realistic pictures - provides even more merriment. -- Julia Jarman, Carousel, Spring 2011'
