The Lovereading4Kids comment

A Lovereading4kids 'Great Read' you may have missed 2011 selection.

There’s a great joke at the heart of this book which is brilliantly captured in the big and bold illustrations showing the wonderful menagerie that needs looking after. The simple, neighbourly task of looking after the pets is given a whole new meaning as this household is revealed!

Synopsis

Thank You for Looking After Our Pets by Tim Hopgood

It's very kind of you to look after our pets while we're away, including Cuddles the Crocodile, Elsie and Edna the Elephants, and Orlando the Octopus! And watch out for the penguins on the stairs...Looking after pets has never been quite so fun, or as surprising!

About the Author

Tim Hopgood

Tim Hopgood lives with his wife, children and cats in North Yorkshire. He is a graduate of Kingston University and worked for twenty years in graphic design and freelance illustration. Tim’s first book, Our Big Blue Sofa, was published by Macmillan in 2006 and he has gone on to publish a number of successful picture books including Tip Tap went the Crab and WOW said the Owl.

Julia Eccleshare, the editorial expert on Lovereading4kids says, Bubbling with energy, prize winning Tim Hopgood’s illustrations are also full of warmth. The enchanting owl, waking up as night falls, gives a beautiful introduction to colours in Wow! Said the Owl while a chirpy crab with very big eyes tip taps as it counts its way around the seashore in Tip Tap went the Crab. A Dog Called Rod is a wonderful fantasy about owning a dog even though dad says dogs are noisy, messy and expensive! Full of life as the pages shimmer, Here Comes Frankie is also full of noise as Frankie’s life is transformed when he starts to play the trumpet. There’s lots of noise and energy too as the gloriously strokable sofa takes off on an unusual adventure in Our Big Blue Sofa.
