Product Description

Product Description

A fabulous new picture book from the bestselling author of Aliens Love Underpants.
On a hill bumpy-steepy, there's a house scary-creepy,
And it's said that a Snortle lives there...
One moonlit night, Mouse, Cat and Dog set off on a great Snortle hunt - do you dare join them?
Praise for The Great Snortle Hunt
"This is mirrored brilliantly by the illustrations, particularly by the ingenious use of the space on the page. Kate Hindley is a newcomer in the picture book world but definitely one to watch. Her style is sleek and child-friendly, with plenty of detail throughout, and she uses a beautiful palette of colours which is enhanced by the use of mat paper, to wonderful effect." Armadillo, Winter 2012
"This charmingly illustrated book is guaranteed to make reading time extra exciting." Creative Steps, Summer 2012
"Will delight young readers. The beautiful illustrations by Kate Hindley are modern and scenic…a real treat for word lovers of all ages." We Love this Book, Summer 2012
"Young readers will love the build-up of excitement... Freedman knows what children like and her words are well-matched by Hindley's spikey images... the page shape too is used to maximum effect in this affirming production" Books for Keeps, July 2012
Praise for Claire Freedman's 'Underpants' series
"Will make kids laugh" The Sun
"This fantastic rhyming story [...] is simply pantastic!" Galaxy British Book Awards 2008
"Daft and absurdly amusing book." Prima Baby & Pregnancy
A charmingly illustrated rhyming text with twists and turns right up to the end!

5.0 out of 5 stars Kate Hindley's debut picture book! 27 Aug 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I've been a fan of Kate Hindley's work for a long, long time and couldn't wait to get my hands on her new picture book 'The Great Snortle Hunt' - The illustrations are so beautiful and full of character and whimsy. The story (written by Claire Freedman) is just as good - nice to read to children as it rhymes and there is a lot of expression in it to keep them interested. Really lovely book to buy for any little'uns in your life, or if you're a big kid like me, buy it for yourself :)

5.0 out of 5 stars On a par with The Gruffalo 4 May 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Our children of 6 and 5 years love these books - where stories rhyme and build up to tense moments that then become a realisation of misinterpretation, and all ends with everyone being friends... a bit like life really! Anyway, a great book, this author and illustration is on a par with Julia Donaldson's Gruffalo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful illustrations. 14 May 2013
Format:Paperback
Truly beautiful book with Kate Hindley's signature art-style oozing from every page, all backed up with a clever little story that my kids loved. This is sure to be a book that's looked at again and again.
I can't recommend this enough.

Really nice book this. The hardback version is probably worth getting it to be honest as this is one I'll be reading for years to come. I've road tested on my 5 and 3 year old. Both like it, although my 3yr old found it slightly scary at first (won't say any more in case I spoil the story for anyone who hasn't read it). Looking forward to more books by Claire Freedman.
