The Lovereading4Kids comment

Age: Baby +. On a cold winter's night one animal after another invites himself into a house and by the time it's bedtime there's all manner of animals and scarecrow tucked up by the fire. Some delightful close-up and colourful illustrations show the detail on each and every animal that appears. A lovely bedtime read and a great way for toddlers to learn the names of lots of different animals.

Synopsis

The Big Snuggle-up by Brian Patten

It all started with a scarecrow coming into the house out of the snow, bringing with him the mouse that lived up his sleeve. But it wasn't only these two who were looking for a warm place to snuggle up!

Reviews

'His poems are made with great skill and honesty.' - British Book News

'Bayley's pictures are characteristically painstaking and gentle, softly lit, finely worked and pretty.' - Sunday Times

'The beautiful and detailed pictures and the rhyming repetitive text will make this a pleasure to read aloud to a small child.' The Spectator

Other praise for Illustrator Nicola Bayley:

For Katje the Windmill Cat: 'This heart-warming story is rendered something really
treasurable by Bayley's wonderfully vivid and rich illustrations.' - Guardian

For The Necessary Cat: 'Nicola's illustrations are exquisite and the book is a necessary
buy for cat-admirers of all ages.' - Time Out
