These spiral-bound stories allow you to mix and match fairy tales to create dozens of your own sensible or silly stories! Highly interactive and great fun.
Packed with jokes, quizzes, puzzles, games, extracts from lots of favourite stories and a brand new short story from the very funny Jeremy Strong, this a great book for dipping in and out of.
A novelty bath book that tells a simple story and also squirts water! Best read in the bath, but being wipe-clean also good at mealtimes, showing babies that reading is fun everywhere!
