Author(s): Julia Donaldson
With sturdy flaps on every spread and rhyming stories that are a joy to read aloud, the TALES FROM ACORN WOOD have been delighting both parents and toddlers for fifteen years. Now two of the popular lift-the-flap stories from the creators of THE GRUFFALO are together in paperback for the first time, with a fresh new foiled cover look. Rabbit is trying to get to sleep, but everyone is being so noisy. Lift the flaps and find out who is keeping Rabbit awake. Then join Fox in a hunt for his missing socks. Are they in the kitchen or under the stairs? Are they inside the clock or hidden in a chest? Lift the flaps and find out! Look out for POSTMAN BEAR and HIDE-AND-SEEK PIG, also available as a two-books-in-one paperback.
