'Biscuits and cakes!' or 'Spiders and Snakes!' All readers will love way they can change the pictures in this clever picture book. On every spread there's a flap which can be opened to reveal some nice or something disgusting. Every choice is delightful - in its own way!


What's in the Witch's Kitchen? by Nick Sharratt

Britain's most popular artist presents a brilliantly original format that very young children will delight in time and again. The witch has hidden a trick and a treat in her magical kitchen cupboards! Which one you find depends on how you open the doors. Whether its frogspawn or popcorn, lollipops or rabbit plops, there are hilarious rhymes to discover inside in this innovative new novelty book from Nick Sharratt. Perfect for children to read again and again, this spooky title is great not only for Halloween but all year round. This is a funny Halloween title. The clever novelties are sturdy and will stand up to many re-readings.


Clever flaps which open in two ways add a refreshing and witty dimension. (Julia Eccleshare, Guardian)
