Next! by Christopher Inns


Next! by Christopher Inns

Introducing Doctor Hopper and Nurse Rex Barker, who run a busy toy hospital. First in is One Eye Ted, who needs a new eye. Doctor Hopper finds him not one, but two lovely new eyes from her special tin. Now he'll be called Two Eye Ted. Next! shouts Doctor Hopper, and another patient appears. When the waiting room is finally empty, the Doctor and Nurse sit down for a cup of tea and a biscuit and think about tomorrow and who will be NEXT! A charmingly wacky pre-school picture book, full of humour and accompanied by bright, colourful illustrations.


This story - with zinging colours and minimal text - is very funny indeed. It manages to be both warmly touching and sharply witty at the same time, with laughs for the adult reader, too The Ultimate First Book Guide
