The Lovereading4Kids comment
Longlisted for the 2015 CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal - Shortlisted for the Little Rebels Book Award 2015 Awarding-winning Chris Haughton tells a big story in stunning illustrations in his near-wordless picture book. The huntsmen are determined to capture the bird. Armed with nets they creep up on their prey…but they haven’t got every angle covered! How the littlest repeatedly sabotages the huntsmen’s plans is a wittily told story with a strong message about communication.
Kids love to read and share books from an early age and so in addition to our Lovereading expert opinion some of the younger members of our Lovereading4kids Reader Review Panel were also lucky enough to read and review this title. You can read their full reviews by clicking here.
- Thomas Parker, age 4 - 'My 4 year old loved this book. The pictures tell the story and the text is easy to read, so he can read to me too.'
- Liam Hill, age 5 - 'I liked this book because it made me giggle! I can imagine the story in my head...I want to read it again and then I am going to make a plan... Shhhhh.'
- Aoife Harrison, age 5 - 'I liked this book. I liked it because it was funny.'
- Amatullah Khatun, age 5 - 'another brilliant book by the talented author and illustrator, Chris Haughton.'
- Tanya Thurling - 'we did enjoy the story...Eleanor my daughter found the story a bit too simple.'
- Alison and Rebecca Urquhart, age 5 - 'It was an enjoyable read to share as a bed time story and I'm sure would be the kind of story that would be requested by younger children over and over again.'
Shh! We Have a Plan by Chris Haughton
Four friends, three big and one little, are out for a walk. Suddenly, they spot it - a beautiful bird perched high in a tree! They simply MUST have it and - SHH! - they have a PLAN. So they tip-toe, tip-toe very slowly, nets poised - Ready one...ready two...ready three...GO! But, at the turn of the page, we find a ridiculous bunch of very tangled characters and a blissfully oblivious bird, flying away. One hilarious foiled plan after another and it's clear that this goofy trio CANNOT catch that elusive birdie! But the littlest of this group, a quiet spectator up until now, knows that a bit of kindness and sweetness can go a lot further than any elaborate scam. Will his three friends follow his gentle lead or will they get themselves into even more trouble?
