Synopsis

Tilly and Friends: What's Everyone Doing? by Polly Dunbar

Each of the seven spreads feature labelled picture clues on the left and a lift-the-flap picture on the right which reveals the answer. Young children will love looking at the clues and guessing what Tilly and her friends are doing!

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

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.
