Prepared to be scared – in the most delightful way – in this witty story about some rather dodgy neighbours. Visiting her Auntie Iris, a young chinchilla is alarmed by the neighbours. With families of bears, crocodiles and wolves living below, is Auntie Iris’s home really safe? Things can only get worse when the new neighbours move in… Young readers will love the frisson of terror and the final outcome! Created in consultation with literacy specialist, Prue Goodwin, this is a brand new early reader paperback making use of the story and the illustrations from the original picture book but reformated into small paperback format with more pages. Perfect for children who are gaining confidence in their reading and want something to bridge the gap between large format picture books and chapter books. There are wonderfully comic illustrations throughout to help the reader understand and follow the story.
Time to Read: Who Ate Auntie Iris? by Sean Taylor
One little chinchilla loves going to visit her Auntie Iris - but there's danger in the air at the block of flats where she lives...not surprising when there are bears on the first floor, crocodiles on the second floor and wolves on the third! Then one day, Auntie Iris goes down to put out the rubbish, and she doesn't come back! Little Chinchilla is determined to solve the mystery of her disappearance, even if it does mean talking to her very scary neighbours!
