It's not cheap, but worth every penny. A worthy companion to Shirley Hughes' excellent Out and About: A First Book of Poems.
We still utilise the book by looking and talking about the images which do inspire discussions. I just wish the writing was thought about a bit more because it ruins the book for me.
I bought the hardback as I prefer a hardback book.
