June 2014 Book of the Month

Winner of the Waterstones Best Children's Picture Book 2013 and Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2013 Acclaimed new illustrator Rebecca Cobb injects the unexpected into this pleasingly imaginative and un-preachy story about a little girl who doesn’t want to eat her lunch. Staring glumly at what is on offer, the little girl finds herself joined by a bear, a crocodile and a wolf. Luckily, they are all very hungry! Attractive simple illustrations capture this story of food, friendship and the unexpected.

Synopsis

Lunchtime by Rebecca Cobb

It's lunchtime for one little girl, but she's just not hungry. A visiting crocodile, bear and wolf, however, are starving. It's just as well that children taste revolting! A beautifully illustrated tale of food, friendship and fun.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
