Hubert Horatio Bartle Bobton-Trent by Lauren ChildAnother fantastic, witty and incredibly original story from award-winning Lauren Child. Hubert Horatio or H for short is a genius at almost absolutely everything. His parents on the other hand aren't too good with money...and fritter away the family fortune. It's up to Hubert and his friend, Stanton Harcourt to sort out the mess.
. - TES teacher 3 Herb, the expressively wide-eyed hero of Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book, is better at reading pictures than words. Lauren Child's anarchic book inventively plays with fairy-tale conventions. Herb, in his crazy nighmare, falls unwittingly into his own book - climbing up words of dramatically changing typography and being chased through pages by well-known characters. Herbs earlier snipping-out of Prince Charming and ... adding moustaches and telephones exacerbates the chaos. - The Bookseller 4 A wonderfully imaginative, postmodern idea. Absorbing and with fantastical zany pictures. - The Observer Review 5 Hugely creative, Lauren Child's individual style is shown to perfection in this funny, subversive story. - Parentwise As funny as ever, with the usual distinction combination of graphics and collage artwork -- childrens bookseller 20040804 'Boldly conceived ... brilliantly funny, and discerning.
'If you haven't yet discovered the funky, stylish world of Lauren Child, buy this book for yourself ... this woman is amazing.'
. -- The Lady 20050315 'Hubert Horatio Bartle Bobton-Trent ... does capture the spirit of a bygone age... children will pore over the tiny details scattering the pages while the story contains enough humour based on the subtle nuances of social class to keep an adult entertained.
'The kitsch queen of children's picture books.'
's most ambitious and visually striking book yet. -- Bookfest 2004 20041203 Hilarious, rather quirky...
