Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book?

Written by Lauren Child

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book? Synopsis

The story of a boy who fell into a book . . . with a guest appearance from the Little Bad Wolf. From Children's Laureate Lauren Child. Now if you were going to fall into a book, a book of fairy tales would probably not be your first choice. Because in every story there is always a wicked this, an evil that or a hungry somebody. It could only happen to Herb, child star of that thrilling tale, Beware of the Storybook Wolves. Equally loved by children young and old, this brilliantly original picture book is perfect for sharing together. From the creator of the award-winning, bestselling Charlie and Lola series. Open it if you dare! 'A thrilling story to scare your socks off.' The Bookseller 'Wonderfully imaginative... Absorbing and with fantastical, zany pictures.' The Observer 'Very, very funny and definitely not to be missed!' Books for Keeps

Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book? Press Reviews

Brilliantly observed with heaps of irreverent (but good natured) humour) * Junior * Lauren Child's individual style is shown to perfection in this funny, subversive story * Bookwise * A book children will come to again and again * School Librarian * Each page is still a surprise and a delight * Books For Keeps * Lauren Child pushes the boundaries of design in a book crammed with a wealth of comic detail * Child Education * Child's book is so unusual, it's impossible not to get drawn into it ... as with all Child's books, her wonderfully quirky illustrations bring the story to life * The List * Child's comedy romp confounds the expectations of young readers to hilarious effect. * Time Out *
