Synopsis

Collins Big Cat Talk Talk Talk: Band 04/Blue by Martin Waddell

Bill longs for someone to talk to. Then one day the door to his room opens and...a giant bottom comes in! Legs, arms, chest follow as bit by bit, Bill's new giant friend appears. When his friend's last bit finally arrives and he is in one piece, they have plenty to talk about! *Blue/Band 4 books offer longer, repeated patterns with sequential events and integrated literary and natural language. * Text type - A traditional story. * A flow chart on pages 14 and 15 shows the different body parts that make up Bill's new friend, giving children the opportunity to recap and retell the story. * Curriculum links - Science: ourselves, parts of the body. * Talk, Talk, Talk is one of three Collins Big Cat books by Martin Waddell.

About the Author

Martin Waddell

As a child

I've been blown up, buried alive and had cancer as an adult, and survived all these experiences, so I'm a very lucky man. I live where I lived as a child, and nearly all my stories come from things that have happened to me here, at the foot of the Mountain of Mourne.

As an artist
I work in an old stone barn beside my home, and dream my stories in the garden and on long walks on the beach in front of my house. I never write anywhere else. This is where I belong.

I can wiggle my ears. I am a very noisy tennis player. I had a cat that could open doors. My dog hears my stories before I write them. I scored a hat trick on my debut in adult football, but wound up as a goalkeeper. I used to run a junk stall. I like bringing up egg-shaped stones from the beach to my garden. I like apple tarts. I hate onions. I’m a happy man
