Too Pickly! by Jean Reidy


Too Pickly! by Jean Reidy

Too wrinkly, too squishy, too fruity, too fishy! It's lunchtime, but our fussy little boy doesn't like a single item on his plate. What is a boy to eat? Reidy's playful rhyming text is once again brought to life by Leloup's bold art. Parents (and children) will love the boy's hilarious antics and the reassuring joy at the end of all that kitchen-table drama.


'The playful rhyming of Jane Reidy's text is brought to life by Leloup's vibrantly colourful art ... One for young and old to enjoy and definitely food for thought'
