Bob and Flo and the Missing Bucket by Rebecca Ashdown


Bob and Flo and the Missing Bucket by Rebecca Ashdown

Flo, a little penguin, arrives at nursery with her packed lunch: a new pink bucket of shiny fish. Bob is fascinated by Flo's bucket and he puts it on his head! Then he uses it to make sandcastles, to reach the top of his block tower, as a drum-kit. In fact he's so creative in how he uses Flo's bucket that it takes her some time to track it down. But when she does the bucket becomes more useful than it's been all day - it becomes the object that brings Bob and Flo together as the best of friends! A beautifully-illustrated story from new talent Rebecca Ashdown, presenting a toddler's-eye-view of the world to young children everywhere steering a course through their first friendships. Lots of visual humour to really engage a young audience.
