Badger and the Great Storm by Suzanne Chiew


Badger and the Great Storm by Suzanne Chiew

Badgers have always lived under the old oak tree. But one day, a terrible storm arrives. Big-hearted Badger works hard to keep his friends safe from the bad weather - protecting burrows and rescuing nests. But who will look after Badger's home in the old oak tree? Badger and the Great Storm is a warm and touching tale of friendship, courage and new beginnings. With gently humorous illustrations from Caroline Pedler (Don't Wake the Bear, Hare! and There's No Such Thing as Monsters!), it's the perfect book for sharing with children.


The simple story is one of friendship and courage, and is perfect for sharing with little ones. The illustrations, by Caroline Pedler, are beautiful. - Parenthood Highs & Lows This was the first book we've read by Suzanne Chiew and Caroline Pedler and we'd love to see more work from them because if they can produce more books like Badger and the Great Storm, then we'd have very happy children all the time. - Book Passion for Life This is truly a wonderful story for families to read together. - For the Love of a Good Book enjoyable read that demonstrates to children how rewarding it is to put others first before themselves, by helping where he can, which is truly a great way to be. It delivers a strong message of what true friendship is and what it can mean. - Cracked Nails & Split Ends This lovely story about friendship, illustrated with some adorable animals, is perfect for snuggling up and reading on a cold or stormy night. It's warm, cosy and reassuring. - Parents in Touch A lovely book to read together as a family. The illustrations are simple but really bring the tale to life. - Mama Mummy Mum
