Baby on Board

Written by Allan Ahlberg

Illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark

Baby on Board Synopsis

Once, many years ago, there was a baby, in his pram, with his sisters and their sandwiches and lemonade and toys . . . A lyrical and epic story about a baby and a trio of toys, and their adventure on the high seas. Beautifully told by master storyteller Allan Ahlberg and stunningly illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark in their first standalone picture-book collaboration.
