All Mine! (Board)
PUBLICATION JUNE 2016
A bold and very funny story all about a seagull who simply cannot share!Poor Mouse is just about to tuck into his lunch, when in swoops Seagull and gobbles it up. Mouse's crisps aren't safe either ... what a rude and greedy bird he is! But Mouse has a fiendish trick up his sleeve, which just might cure Seagull of his thieving ways.All Mine! is a brilliantly funny cautionary tale about the importance of sharing; the strong visual narrative and energetic dialogue will make it a sure-fire hit at story time. With striking, brightly coloured artwork and slapstick humour, this yummy comic caper is a read-along delight for young children, and the lovely hardback board book format is perfect for little hands. Award-winning Zehra Hicks' books are a feast for the eyes full of movement and hilarity, and her use of collage and mixed media will inspire children to craft their own creations using found objects and exciting materials.
Look out! Seagull's about!
a wonderful book ... about learning to share; something very pertinent to young children, but served-up in a way that is anything but preachy. -- Pippa Goodhart Awfully Big Reviews A wonderful book ... about learning to share; something very pertinent to young children, but served-up in a way that is anything but preachy. -- Pippa Goodhart Awfully Big Reviews
