The Lovereading4Kids comment

Stunning illustrations show the most arresting features of all sorts of animals – the pointy teeth of a crocodile and the long curving neck of a flamingo – all of which are fitted together to create a wonderful invented creature. Young readers will enjoy the mismatch of animal parts and the humour of the strange hybrid creation.

Lovereading comment:

Uncover the mystery creature by following Alexandra Milton’s stunning collage and Giles Milton’s humorous text. It’s a real feast for the eyes and a puzzle for the mind of both parent and child. Gorgeous!

Synopsis

Call Me Gorgeous by Giles Milton

Call Me Gorgeous! is a fun, stylish book about a very, very strange creature. It has a porcupine's spines and a crocodile's teeth, a chameleon's tale and a cockerel's feet. What on earth could it be?

Reviews

‘A debut picture book that not only deserves to be examined closely, but also stood well back from and gazed at in awe’ - The Bookseller

About the Author

Giles Milton

Giles Milton is an insomniac who spends his sleepless nights inventing friendly monsters and fabulous beasts. When not writing stories for children, he writes history books for adults. And when he's not writing history, he's probably working on a novel. His desk is less than three feet from his wife's, but they argue surprisingly rarely. Call Me Gorgeous! is Giles' first book for children.
