Utterly charming artwork, delicious palette, gentle humour and winsome characters - Tilly, Hector, Pru, Doodle, Tipty and Tumpty, have deservedly made this series a winner and now gained much greater recognition on the back of the brilliant CBeebies episodes. From inspired picture-book creator Polly Dunbar, this televised series follows the escapades of Tilly and her friends.


Tilly and Friends Star Party by Polly Dunbar

Tilly and her friends are camping out in the garden when Tiptoe spots a lone blue star twinkling in the sky. Tiptoe twinkles back at him - but the star won't come down, and even Pru's high heels don't make Tiptoe tall enough to go up. It looks as though the blue star is going to be stuck without a playmate - until Tilly checks in her Space book and discovers that the little blue star might already have some friends of his own...Tilly and Friends is currently airing on Cbeebies, with 52 episodes in the series. Utterly charming artwork, delicious palette, gentle humour and winsome characters have deservedly made this a series of winners.

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
