June 2014 Book of the Month  

Winner of the Waterstones Best Children's Picture Book 2013 and Shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal 2013       Acclaimed new illustrator Rebecca Cobb injects the unexpected into this pleasingly imaginative and un-preachy story about a little girl who doesn’t want to eat her lunch. Staring glumly at what is on offer, the little girl finds herself joined by a bear, a crocodile and a wolf. Luckily, they are all very hungry! Attractive simple illustrations capture this story of food, friendship and the unexpected.
