LoveReading View on Until I Met Dudley

Award winning duo - poet Roger McGough and illustrator Chris Riddell - have created a stunning picture book that is part-fact, part brilliant invention. A little girl thinks she knows just how everything works. Take a toaster, for example. Surely, there’s a dragon inside who breathes fire and makes the toast just right? Or is there another explanation all together? And what about the polar bears in the fridge? Or the pigs in the rubbish truck? Luckily Dudley is on hand to put her right with some rather more scientific answers!
