Warthog by Birdie Black


Warthog by Birdie Black

When a plucky little warthog sets out on an adventure, he meets all sorts of fascinating creatures, from two angry bees, all the way up to nine scared monkeys. All children will love lifting the flaps to count the hidden animals and following the ten muddy footprints which lead to...a fierce-looking lion!

About the Author

Birdie Black (Author) Birdie Black, the author of Just Right for Christmas, read lots of children's books as a child, and didn't really ever stop. As well as writing the odd book, she runs a small, independent children's publishing company... Oh, all right: it's Kate Wilson. Rosalind Beardshaw (Illustrator) Rosalind Beardshaw is the illustrator of Just Right for Christmas and Just Right for Two. She has illustrated many picture books for children including Mole's in Lovewritten by David Bedford, A Tale of Two Goats by Tom Barber and Lulu Loves the Library by Anna McQuinn. She has also illustrated a couple of her own stories; Grandma's Beach and Grandpa's Surprise. She loves creating new characters, especially if they can be based loosely/wholly on her shaggy lurcher Basil. She lives in York with her partner Al, daughter Iris, and young son Freddie, who loves watching 'Calamity Jane'. Who knows what Doris Day's influence will be...?
