LoveReading View on Call Me Gorgeous

Stunning illustrations show the most arresting features of all sorts of animals – the pointy teeth of a crocodile and the long curving neck of a flamingo – all of which are fitted together to create a wonderful invented creature.  Young readers will enjoy the mismatch of animal parts and the humour of the strange hybrid creation.


Lovereading comment:

This is a truly, truly gorgeous picture book. Fun and stylish it’s the story of a very strange creature.  Is it a pig, a toucan or a crocodile?  Uncover the mystery creature by following Alexandra Milton’s stunning collage and Giles Milton’s humorous text.  It’s a real feast for the eyes and a puzzle for the mind of both parent and child. Gorgeous!

Call Me Gorgeous Synopsis

About Giles Milton

Giles Milton is an insomniac who spends his sleepless nights inventing friendly monsters and fabulous beasts. When not writing stories for children, he writes history books for adults. And when he's not writing history, he's probably working on a novel. His desk is less than three feet from his wife's, but they argue surprisingly rarely. Call Me Gorgeous! is Giles' first book for children.
