Description

Two of the biggest names in children’s publishing, Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell, come together in a new poetry collection.

Winner of the 2016 CLPE Poetry Award. Two of the biggest names in children’s publishing, Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell, come together in a new poetry collection. The poems in A Great Big Cuddle fizz off the page with sound and rhythm, energy and laughter, as Rosen captures in the most remarkable way what it means to be very, very young. A child’s world with all its details and feelings – toys and games, animals and made-up creatures, likes and dislikes – is vividly conjured up in the most memorable, playful language, and Chris Riddell has produced some his most extraordinary pictures ever to bring this world to life. It’s a book that will be enjoyed by the oldest grown-up and the youngest child – and a future classic.

Publisher Review

"[...] bright and bold" * WRD Magazine * With repetition and jollity, this collection of short poems will provide hours of special shared moments. The illustrations are beautifully observed, too. * Baby London * Michael Rosen's close and affectionate observation of small children and the way they think is brilliantly captured [...]Chris Riddell's illustrations created an equally warm-hearted view of the early years and capture the spirit of the poems perfectly. * Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading *
