This beautiful new mini hardback of Lauren Child’s first picture book, is celebrating 15 years in print. The deliciously droll riddle of a story captures the essence of Lauren Child at her best – her ability to understand children, their likes and dislikes, and communicate without patronising – and her distinctive and quirky illustrations are sure to delight grown-ups and children alike. Perfect for reading aloud or an early reader for a child to enjoy by themselves.
