One of Our Books of the Year 2017 | Playtime with Ted is one of a new series of interactive board books from the super-talented Sophy Henn and like her bestselling picture books it’s fresh and funny, and a wonderful celebration of the joys of being a child. Ted is having great fun: to the unseen grown up he’s sitting in a cardboard box, but flip over the flap and we see what Ted sees as his box transforms into a series of vehicles, from racing car to submarine to rocket ship. It seems so simple but there’s a brilliance in the idea and the delivery, and this will delight children and adults alike. ~ Andrea Reece

Synopsis

Playtime with Ted by Sophy Henn

Playtime With Ted and Bedtime With Ted launch this brand new character-led series of chunky lift-the-flap board books.

Playtime, Ted! Ted isn't sitting in a box, he's whizzing along in his racing car. Broooom broooom brooom! Or digging a hole in his digger. Dig dig dig! Or exploring the oceans in his submarine. Bloop bloop bloop! Join in the fun as Ted's imagination goes wild - lift the flaps to find out what he is doing next!

Perfect for fans of Chris Haughton and Rob Biddulph, this sturdy board book celebrating the imagination will have pre-schoolers chortling with laughter!
