Beautifully observed depiction of family life, and very funny too
Everyone with young children will recognise the two little Huffalots at the centre of this story, and the transformation that happens to them during their day. First thing in the morning, they are very grumpy, slow to get dressed and squabbling over breakfast. As the day goes on though, and they have fun in the park and more fun at home, they change into Huffalittles, and then into something different again. Just as well too, because it’s around the end of the day that Mum shows signs of becoming a Huffalot… Eve Coy’s gorgeous illustrations of Mum and her two children are full of movement, the ordinary moments of their day beautifully observed, and the story itself will have everyone smiling.
When Mum wakes up her Huffalots, nothing is right - they don't like their clothes, their breakfast is yucky and they just don't like each other. When one of them trips over, the other offers a hug and they magically transform into Huffalittles, then Lovealittles, and finally, with a big cuddle they become Lovealots. But it's been a long day and Mum is now grumpy and tired. Good thing the Lovealots know exactly what to do...
A gorgeous picture book that explores how moods change through the day, and what we can do to help others feel better.

Eve Coy always loved to draw. She studied animation at Edinburgh University and became an artist working for Aardman Animation. When they lived in Bristol she would take her first daughter to the library which had a fabulous children's section, placed on shelves inside a boat. She and her daughter were frequent passengers on that boat, and as they worked their way through the shelves Eve became hooked on picture books. Eve gained an MA in Children's illustration from the prestigious Cambridge School of Art and Looking After William is her first picture book.More About Eve Coy
