Synopsis

Catch Us If You Can-Can! by Alex T Smith

The dastardly duo from Egg returns in this delightfully silly tale. The utterly charming Foxy Dubois and Alphonso the Alligator put on their dancing shoes to commit the crime of the century! But when they hit the dance floor, things start to go terribly wrong...Egg was selected by CBeebies Bedtime Stories and was the Book of the Week at Peters' Bookselling Services.Alex T. Smith is also the author of the extraordinary fiction series Claude which was shortlisted for the Waterstone's prize and was part of the Richard and Judy Book Club. Praise for Egg: 'A delightfully silly tale of a fox that wants to eat an egg. Alex T Smith's quirky illustrations help sell the absurdity. Recommended.'

Reviews

Will guarantee giggles from younger readers. A glorious picture book that is as loud and zany as... well, as an alligator dancing in a sequined skirt. Encore, Encore! * Booktrust * Plenty of emotion and drama in this story of two young puppies trying to survive. If you love Michael Morpurgo, you will enjoy this. * Sunday Express * Hilarious... gorgeous brightly coloured illustrations. * Guardian * This is a totally wacky tale, but that is the beauty of it. Expect fits of giggles at storytime. * Library Mice * Will keep youngsters enthralled. A witty text with strong illustrations make this a gem of a book. * Carousel * Big, bold illustrations by the author add to the story. * School Librarian * Wonderful, expressive illustrations and a humorous story with true child appeal. * Peters Gazette * The illustrations are brilliantly drawn... a lot of fun. * Bookbag *
