Evil Weasel by Hannah Shaw


Evil Weasel by Hannah Shaw

Weasel is evil. His mean schemes and cunning tricks have made him richer than you can possibly imagine. But they have also upset his friends. So when Weasel throws a big party to show off his amazing castle, fast car and money-filled swimming pool, none of his guests turn up! Weasel is horrified to discover that he's bad at being a friend and sets out to put things right. But can he convince his friends that he's truly sorry? And will he really learn the error of his ways and stop being evil altogether?


Hannah Shaw's vigorous and witty illustrations provide enough laughs to stop this being preachy but the do-as-you-would-be-done-to message could be useful -- Julia Eccleshare Guardian A notable new illustrator, Hannah Shaw, fills the pages with event, as skewed perspectives, comic details and playful use of typefaces tell the story of sly-faced Evil Weasel ... For 4-7s - and adults, who can enjoy the entertaining endpapers -- Nicolette Jones The Sunday Times Smartly illustrated and told in a light, confident style as Weasel becomes a reformed character -- Kate Kellaway Observer Lovely and novel The School Librarian A fun lesson in the art of saying sorry from first-time author-illustrator Hannah Shaw Junior
