The Lovereading 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!
