Product description

Review

Hilarious detail and fantastic illustrations make this picture book a real joy from start to finish (Good Books for Tough Times)

If you haven't yet discovered the funky, stylish world of Lauren Child, buy this book for yourself for Christmas, this woman is amazing (Daily Mail)

Such delicious visual jokes abound in this most inventive modern fairy tale - young readers will love it (Books For Keeps)

Hilarious...quirky (Primary Times)

This heart warming tale is witty and entertaining and has a moral ending (The Lady)

A quirky and unusual picture book with the distinctive and inimitable style we have come to expect from Lauren Child (The School Librarian)

A compelling, quirky and highly original story with vibrant illustrations full of irony and humour. (The Guardian)

Praise for Lauren Child:
1'Wacky, idiosyncratic stunners.' - THE SUNDAY TIMES
2Books are at the mercy of their owners, but careless Herb, who has defaced his fairytale collection with scissors and pencil, finds the traditional characters taking revenge in Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book?, a more robust tale than last year's Kate' Greenaway medal winner, I will not Ever Never Eat a Tomato, with wider appeal (including key stage 2 readers). - TES teacher
3Herb, the expressively wide-eyed hero of Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Book, is better at reading pictures than words. Lauren Child's anarchic book inventively plays with fairy-tale conventions. Herb, in his crazy nighmare, falls unwittingly into his own book - climbing up words of dramatically changing typography and being chased through pages by well-known characters. Herbs earlier snipping-out of Prince Charming and ... adding moustaches and telephones exacerbates the chaos. - The Bookseller
4A wonderfully imaginative, postmodern idea. Absorbing and with fantastical zany pictures. - The Observer Review
5Hugely creative, Lauren Child's individual style is shown to perfection in this funny, subversive story. - Parentwise



A superb book (With Kids)

As funny as ever, with the usual distinction combination of graphics and collage artwork (childrens bookseller)

Book Description

Hubert Horatio's parents are frightfully, frightfully rich and enjoy spending money. They enjoy it so much, soon they will have spent it all! It's up to Hubert Horatio, their genius son, to sort out the mess...
