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.

Synopsis

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...

She wrote her first book aged five - a slim volume about cats and stitchd together with a painfullly blunt needle so that it looked like a 'real' book. After that, there was no turning back. Having been fired from her Saturday job selling cowboy boots in the Kings Road for chewing gum, and after a brief career as a reptile vet's assistant, she worked as a copywirter and had her first picture book published at the age of 21 (which she wrote whilst pretending to be busy creating adverts for cognac) and has now written over eighty titles. She has won numerous awards, including the Children's Book Award, the Silver Smarties Prize and has been shortlisted for the Whitbread Award. She has written Who’s in the Loo? which won the Red House Children’s Book Award. Her hobbies include gardening, reading (nonfiction), natural history and collecting caterpillars. Jeanne has also worked on scripts for TV, including Polly Pocket and The Slow Norris, and a pilot TV series for Dr Xargle. She lives in North London with her husband and two children.
