LoveReading View on Charlie Cook's Favourite Book 15th Anniversary Edition

Celebrate fifteen years of Charlie Cook's Favourite Book with this special anniversary edition, featuring the much-loved original story plus additional bonus content and a new foiled cover.

There are lots of reading jokes in this book within a book, within a book: pirates and robbers settle down with their favourite stories and the Three Bears discover Goldilocks reading their favourite book (after having eaten their porridge, of course). It’s all written in bubbly rhyming verse matched with vigorous illustrations which make extensive play of the central joke.
