The Big Book Adventure

By Emily Ford

Illustrated by Tim Warnes

Silver Dolphin 2018

Flying over Neverland, swimming with a mermaid, joining in a mad tea party, soaring on a magic carpet—old classics come to life in the reading adventures of Piggy and Foxy!

Here’s a project about something I feel very passionate about – the joy of books, and reading for pleasure! I revisited personal old favourites – kids books that I still have on my shelves today. I loved the premise that these fantasy worlds become vivid and real in our imaginations – just watch out for the Big Bad Wolf…

Follow Piggy and Foxy’s example: gather your books and swap and share. Because books can take you anywhere!

Find out about the making of this in my blog post: Piggy, Red and the Big, Bad Wolf.
