30 pp

This simple book – available in board book format for babies – is a wonderful ‘interactive’ puzzle book for the very young. On each page is a couplet and a bright, cheery illustration. The reader is given the task of finding a well-known nursery rhyme character hiding on each page.

Tom Thumb in the cupboard

I spy Mother Hubbard

Once all of them have been spotted, they all gather at the end for delicious plum pie. (Even the wicked witch, who looks to be on her best behaviour.)

Children who know the old nursery rhymes will love this book, but even if they don’t, it’s a fun ‘beginner eye spy’ puzzle book.
