Silly Sea

By Jack Tickle

Caterpillar Books 2012

This is a lovely pop-up book full of colour and movement. The octopus oozes out of the page to grab you, and the shark bears his teeth!

I read this recently to a group of preschoolers who spontaneously leapt up to stroke the ‘gentle whale’, and then refused to sit down again. There was a lot of squealing and giggling, and pretending to be pinched by lobsters.

Includes previously published material.
