Synopsis

Sports Day by Mick Inkpen, Nick Butterworth

A much-loved classic with a great new cover from the creators of Kipper and Percy the Park Keeper. It's Sports Day! There's games and hoops and bean bags, eggs and spoons - lots of fun to have - excitement, cheers and occasional tears. It's going to be a day to remember! 'The charmingly comical Inkpen, as always, hits the spot.' The Guardian 'Nick Butterworth is one of the best picture book writers alive.' The Independent

Reviews

Excellent... a new action-packed series... spine-chilling full-page illustrations. * The Sunday Times * Great. A hugely enjoyable read for all! * Hoddesdon & Broxbourne Mercury *
