Author note

Julia Donaldson is the outrageously talented, prize-winning author of the world's best-loved picture books, and was the 2011-2013 UK Children's Laureate. Her books include What the Ladybird Heard, Tyrannosaurus Drip and the modern classic The Gruffalo, which has sold over 13.5 million copies worldwide and has been translated into over sixty languages. Julia also writes fiction as well as poems, plays and songs and her brilliant live children's shows are always in demand. Julia and her husband Malcolm divide their time between Sussex and Edinburgh.

Rebecca Cobb is a fast-rising star in children's picture books. Having collaborated on three picture storybooks with Orange-Prize winner Helen Dunmore, Rebecca's solo books include the heart-breakingly beautiful Missing Mummy, the gloriously funny Aunt Amelia and Lunchtime, which won the Waterstone's Children's Picture Book Prize and was shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal. In addition, Rebecca has illustrated picture books written by Richard Curtis, and her stunning artwork accompanies Julia Donaldson's lyrical story The Paper Dolls - also shortlisted for the Greenaway Medal. Rebecca lives in Cornwall with her husband and young daughter.

Praise for Rebecca: "[Rebecca] Cobb's illustrations capture the joy of childhood" Sunday Times


Wonderfully engaging, interactive and most importantly fun, this offers the best kind of reading experience for the youngest of readers
Library Mice||With a rhyming text by Gruffalo creator Julia Donaldson that is just made for reading (or singing) aloud, and illustrations by one of our most talented picture book artists, this superb board book has all the makings of a classic. 'Somebody's hiding, I wonder who?' asks the text on each of five spreads - pull down sturdy flaps for the answer - there are five little babies peeping, waving, pointing, and an invitation to join in too: 'Can you dance? Can you dance? Can you dance too?' It takes extraordinary skill to create a text so short, simple and yet so effective and Rebecca Cobb paints the babies with a delicacy that perfectly captures every move and expression. Simply wonderful.
LoveReading4Kids||Perfect for new mums who want to read something fabulous to their tiny ones. Perfect for busy little curious babies who are just discovering books for the first time. Hey, it even works on mildly cynical 8 year olds who think they're too old for 'baby' books too!||The simple rhyming text is perfect for reading aloud
