The Lovereading4Kids comment

Packed full of pop-up surprises this is a hilarious lift-the-flap book with an excellent joke at the end. Wonderful transformations of a host of animals are uncovered under every flap. But, someone isn’t in disguise. Who can be? Young readers will enjoy the joke and the scale of the pop-up.


We're Going to a Party! by Jeanne Willis

'We're going to a party, disguised in fancy dress. But which of us is What or Who? It's up to you to guess!' Lift the flaps of this gloriously funny book to find out which animal is wearing which fancy dress costume. But when it comes to the last page, even the animals themselves are in for a surprise...


'A dream team of writer and illustrator!' - The Times

Praise for Cottonwool Colin:

'Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross's robust sense of humour, plain common sense and pure fun in addressing all that is most mad about our attitude to parenting make them essential for readers aged 4+' - Amanda Craig, The Times

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.
