Product Description

Review

Pure delight. (Carousel)

On David's previous books:

'It's funny and original and an absolute delight to read aloud - a perfect bedtime read.'

(THE PARENT'S GUIDE)

An ideal bedtime book ... This delightful tale is a true charmer ... Melling's witty illustrations are packed with imaginative detail, including the masterly touch of a delicate golden line tracing the swerling path of the kiss. (The Scotsman)

Full of unexpected twists and turns The Kiss That Missed is a wonderful literary example of how to temper fearsome episdoes with humour. ... this story is one which will demand endless rereading. (writeaway.org.uk)

Book Description

David Melling has done it again! Wolves tend to get quite a bad press in storybooks, but The Scallywags are determined to learn some manners and be accepted by the other animals. Only things start to get a little tiring, when they start telling everyone else what to do!

Format: Hardcover
The Scallywags are a bunch of appealing wolves, that's to say scruffy and foolish with lolloping tongues and enormous tripping-over feet rather than the terrifying variety. They stumble into the story, late, annoying the rest of the animals one time too many so they are not invited to join in anything anymore. The wolves (Jumble, Earwax, Brooz, etc.) decide they need to educate themselves about polite ways of behaving and so they do a little spying and put into practice what they learn to unexpected effect and a cheerful if messy ending. The illustrations are smashing as you'd expect from David Melling - friendly amusing pictures guaranteed to make you smile. Look out, for example, for the little wolf toothbrushing his ear and the bear slapping the pig around the head with two halves of a sandwich. There are great parallels between the behaviour of the wolves and of the children enjoying the story (in our house anyway) which will keep the adult reader smiling - and you never know, your children might just learn something. I'd like to see more of these fellows in the future. Great from age 3.....

Our three year old girl loved the illustrations and the style of the Scallywags. A book that can entertain during the day as well as being a staple bedtime book also. A fun book to read to kids too, we'd recommend it to others.
