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.
Charlie Cook is reading a book about a pirate captain, who is reading a book about Goldilocks, who is reading about a knight, who is reading about a frog . . .
From kings and queens to aliens and ghosts, there's something for everyone in Charlie's amazing book of adventure! Charlie Cook's Favourite Book 15th Anniversary Edition features the classic story by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo, as well extra-special additional content, including a letter from the author and never-before-seen artwork from the illustrator.
