Scritch Scratch, We Have Nits by Miriam Moss, Delphine Durand


Scritch Scratch, We Have Nits by Miriam Moss, Delphine Durand

One day a tiny insect, no bigger than a freckle, climbs into Miss Calypso's classroom. Nobody notices until...Polly scritches, Joshua scratches, and soon the whole classroom is scritching and scratching. An irresistibly catchy text and zany artwork - head lice have never been so much fun! 'It won't help you get rid of the little critters, but at least it will make you laugh as you scratch. A really jolly gift for all those children and parents (and grandparents) who get uptight about nits.' The Guardian


Sweet and funny... a story for anyone to enjoy. Bookbag Another light-hearted story with great art-work. Birmingham Post Bright and funny illustrations will have children laughing aloud. Quirky and bold... and the language is lively. Nits or not, get this book for an entertaining and informative read. Carousel

It has introduced my children to books we hadn’t come across before. Real children’s reviews gives a great insight into what others think to

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
