Synopsis

The Silly Slimy Smelly Hairy Book by Babette Cole

If you look closely you'll agree, There are some silly sights to see. The pages of this book are crammed with sights that are not only silly, but are slimy, smelly and hairy, too. Silly-looking people who have silly walks tuck into some very silly food. Intergalactic slime from Mars arrives on our icky, slimy planet. Every imaginable smell is represented from camels and warthogs to stiff, stinky socks. And there is hair to be found everywhere from huge hairy gorillas to tiny hairy fleas. With her irresistible illustrations and wonderfully funny text, who better to guide us through the silly, slimy, smelly, hairy world we live in than the brilliant Babette Cole?

"Hello, My name is Babette Cole and I write and illustrate children's picture books.

I got fed up with school so I left and went to Art School at Canterbury in England. I left there in 1973 with a first class honours degree.

Then, since I had some work published by the BBC. I could go to other publishers with my own books and finally got one published in 1976.

I have lived in different parts of the world like Africa and the West Indies. At present I live in Dorset in England..

I have a stud farm in England and I breed Show Hunters which I ride myself. I have been riding show ponies and horses since I was seven years old. I do a lot of side saddle riding - My little horse, Hot Tip, (Scrappit) and I have been the National Champions for the past three years."
