A reissue of the critically acclaimed and bestselling Shhh! - that has sold over 200,000 copies.
Shhh! You are about to enter a giant's castle. Can you get through the book without waking up the enormous scary giant? What will you do if he wakes up? Why shut the book of course!
Shhh! is based loosely on Jack and the Beanstalk and physically involves the child in narrative and adventure. Lift-up flaps cleverly offer reassurance to the intruder until they reach the final pages.
Now reissued with a beautiful new cover.
'With its understated text and imaginative artwork, this unusual work draws readers into story and setting in a way that few picture books can.' - Publishers Weekly
This book is FANTASTIC for storytime with a group of children. It's great to read it with inflection, pretending to be scared of the giant and telling the kids to SHHH! - Goodreads reviewer
I have worked in a pre-School for 24 years and this is by far their favourite book. The children sit there quietly and as you read the book they are hooked! - Amazon reviewer
