The Something

Written by Rebecca Cobb

Illustrated by Rebecca Cobb

The Something Synopsis

When a little boy's ball disappears down a mysterious hole in the garden, he can't stop thinking about what could be down there - a little mouse's house? The lair of a hungry troll? Or maybe even a dragon's den. Whatever it may be, he's determined to find out! The Something is a glorious imaginative adventure from Rebecca Cobb, the award-winning creator of Aunt Amelia and Lunchtime, and illustrator of The Paper Dolls, written by Julia Donaldson.

The Something Press Reviews

A mysterious hole in the garden provokes some wonderfully imaginative theories. Another absolute gem from Cobb, one of my (and my five-year-old's) favourite picture book creators. * The Bookseller * Brilliantly catches a child's eye view of the world and the power of imagination. * The Bookseller * Cobb celebrates the power of imagination in this treat of a book. -- Children's Special 2014-2015 * The Bookseller * Cobb's illustrations capture the joy of childhood. * The Sunday Times *
