This is an utterly delightful picture book from a bright new talent found by a publisher who seeks out new talent from the MA Illustration course in Cambridge. The clever interaction of the illustrations with some very simple text make it perfect for the smallest toddler and each and every one of them will relate to the ‘not me’ antics of four little children and little dog Jess.
A group of very young children have been making a mess. But when they are asked who did it they all reply innocently, 'Not me!' The reader will know the truth straight away though as the clues are there for all to see. A friendly puppy bounces through the pages, getting caught up in all the chaos, and when the question comes, 'Who will clean and tidy up?' She hops into her basket, closes her eyes and thinks, Not me! An irresistibly charming book for the very young. Don't miss it!
