Synopsis

Is That a Coconut? Yuck! by Tony Bradman

A hilarious jungle farce from best-selling and award-winning author Tony Bradman, creator of Dilly the Dinosaur. One day, a small, round, hairy thing fell from a tree ...and landed right in front of Elephant. What's this? Elephant rumbled, picking it up with his trunk. He hoped it was a tasty treat, but he was disappointed. A coconut? I hate coconuts! A case of mistaken identity is sweeping the jungle ...but can Mama Monkey catch up with the mysterious flying fruit? And why is she so attached to it anyway? The fantastic pairing of Tony Bradman and Katharine McEwan have combined to produce a brightly coloured jungle romp based on the age-old hot potato theme and a case of mistaken identity. An ideal read-aloud book, Is That a Coconut? Yuck! combines rhythm, repetition and a gentle night-time ending to make it the perfect bedtime story.

About the Author

Tony Bradman

Tony Bradman was born in 1954 (not during the Jurassic era, as his children have been known to claim). He went to school in London, and then Cambridge University. After university he worked in the music press, then became Deputy Editor of Parents magazine, and began reviewing children’s books. He had his first book for children published in 1985 and became a full-time author in 1987.

Tony loves films and popular culture. He lives in Beckenham, Kent with his wife Sally and their three children Emma, Helen and Thomas and Rufus the cat.

TONY BRADMAN Q&A:

If you were a Viking warrior, what would your name be? And what about your battle cry?

Which of the places in the book would you most like to visit: Russia, Norway or Constantinople? Why?

If you were a Viking warrior, and could have any person from history/film/books in your gang – who would you choose? And Why? What would the gang be called?

I’d pick all the great Viking warriors – Harald Hardnut, Erik Bloodaxe, the Godwin brothers Tostig and Harold, maybe Thor the Norse God, Beowulf, Aragorn, Gimli, Legolas, Boromir and Faramir from Lord of the Rings and loads of others. What would we be called? Why The Cool Vikings, of course!
