A Julia Eccleshare Pick of the Month February 2020 |
Award-winning Axel Scheffler’s familiar illustrations are a great introduction to simple concepts for the very young. Fox, Rabbit, Bear and Pig, four friends from Acorn Wood explore Colours, Counting, Friends and Opposites in these four small scale and highly durable board books which are neatly held together in a min-library box.
Julia Donaldson said: “I've always had a soft spot for the four Acorn Wood flap books. I remember when I was writing them I became so obsessed with flaps that I couldn't see anything else - it was all oven doors, cupboards, picnic baskets and loo seats (though I didn't actually include one of those in any of the books).
Tales from Acorn Wood celebrates its 20th anniversary this year with reissues of the original four stories publishing in January 2020.
