So much, Trish Cooke, Helen Oxenbury
A tender and humorous look at modern family life, with exuberant art from the illustrator of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
Celebrate the warmth of Afro-Caribbean family life in this multiple award-winning picture book from Trish Cooke and Helen Oxenbury, illustrator of We’re Going on a Bear Hunt.
Mum and baby are home alone when – DING DONG! – Auntie and then Uncle and Nannie and Gran-Gran and the cousins come to visit. And they all want to hug and kiss and squeeze and eat the baby right up – because everybody loves the baby SO MUCH!
With Helen Oxenbury lending her characteristic warmth and humour to a most exuberant family party, Trish Cooke’s rhythmic, cumulative story captures the joy of being the baby in a large extended family – a baby who knows that he is absolutely, utterly adored.
