Synopsis

Tilly and Friends: Who's Hiding? by Polly Dunbar

Tilly, Tumpty, Hector, Doodle, Pru and Tiptoe are playing hide-and-seek. Lift the flaps to find out who's hiding where! Every spread has a shaped flap to lift, with a charming and friendly character hiding inside!

This is one of two fun-filled, novelty board books accompanying the Tilly and Friends television series....the other is What's Everyone Doing?

A note from the author, Polly Dunbar. . ."I came up with the idea for Tilly and Friends years ago when I was house sharing in London. There were a lot of us living in what should have been a two bedroom flat. It was a chaotic and hilarious time in my life; all of us trying to muddle along together meant a lot of laughing but also tears. I wanted to capture this in the Tilly series. I think the stories show how it’s possible to get along together, even on those days when you’re feeling a little bit ‘bitey’ like Doodle! When I first wrote the Tilly stories I didn’t dream that they would become walking talking cartoon characters, I was too busy trying to make them work as books, that seemed enough of a challenge at the time. But it become clear to me as I began to come up with stories that I had many more ideas than would fit in just six books. Hopefully children will relate to Tilly and co as though they are friends. When I was creating the characters I had in mind that although they are animals they are also children, with all the same preoccupations as real children."

Tilly and Friends have their own website; visit www.tillyandfriends.com for games and competitions and more information about your favourite characters.
