The funniest childrens book I have ever read
on 2 March 2002
This book describes the many steps from babyhood to adulthood with the baby/child taking on many different animal forms. As a mother of a 2, 6 and 8 year old I could easily relate each of my children to each animal - be it a mud covered warthog or greedy vulture. Luckily my children were able to see the funny side of it too especially as there is a lovely twist with the parents at the end.
The descriptions are very clever and the illustrations as ever with Quentin Blake are marvellous.
A great read for all ages.
