Is it teething time for your little one?

"Candles and puddles, mangos that tango and a terrible berrible..."


Two of the biggest names in children’s publishing, Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell have come together in a new poetry collection for very young children.


The poems in A Great Big Cuddle fizz off the page with sound and rhythm, energy and laughter, as Rosen captures in the most remarkable way what it means to be very, very young.


A child’s world in all its detail – toys and games, animals and made-up creatures, likes and dislikes - is vividly conjured up in the most memorable and playful language.


Poems that come from that weird and wonderful place called childhood will have you wiggling and giggling and wanting to join in with every page.


Chris Riddell has produced some of his most extraordinary pictures ever to bring this collection to life and create a wonderfully friendly book. Vibrant and imaginative, this book is perfect for sharing both at home and in the classroom, this is one book that will become the go-to bedtime read.


Published by Walker Books, it will be available from Thursday, 3rd September.
