The Lovereading4Kids comment
When Tumpty the elephant tries to hide, the other animals all laugh! Whatever place Tumpty tries, he will still always be visible! But then Tumpty really does disappear. Everyone looks high and low. At last Tumpty reappears. This time, he really was hiding!
Tilly and Friends began life as a charming series of six books by acclaimed author-illustrator Polly Dunbar, and... Exciting news! Tilly and Friends begins on CBeebies, in September 2012... 52 delicious episodes. Each episode follows the everyday adventures of Tilly and her five friends – Pru, Hector, Doodle, Tiptoe and Tumpty – all living in a little yellow house!
About the TV series, Tilly and Friends
Tilly’s world is one which children will be able to relate to and where friendship is at the heart of everything. Tilly loves having her friends around her and always makes time for them with all sorts of imaginative play, discovering the joys and challenges of friendship.
The series comprises 52 episodes of 11 minutes and encourages creativity in a world of everyday adventures. Made by JAM Media and Walker Productions with creative production from Polly Dunbar herself, the series examines the true values of friends and the essence of real love and friendships.
Where's Tumpty? by Polly Dunbar
Tumpty is trying his hardest to hide ...will he ever succeed? I'm hiding, said Tumpty. You can't see me! But everyone can see Tumpty, upside down under a large cardboard box, behind a pot plant. It's very funny. But later when they really can't find Tumpty - not in the cupboard or behind the curtain or in the biscuit tin - suddenly it isn't funny at all...
Utterly charming artwork, delicious palette, gentle humour and winsome characters have deservedly made this a series of winners. From the bestselling author and illustrator of Penguin which was the winner of the 0-5 Nestle Silver Award 2007 and the 2007 Booktrust Early Years Award in the pre-school category.
