Suzy wants to be different. She tries to copy other creatures to achieve this and squawks like a toucan, swims like a seal and jumps like a kangaroo. But when she tries to roar like a lion, her 'rroarrhonk' annoys the lion and he chases her back to her flock, where she finds that anonymity is an asset!

 

A delightful collection of action-filled pages; the illustrations fit the text perfectly and will greatly entertain young readers, while introducing new vocabulary for actions and sounds.

 

Horácek’s style is bold, funny and bright and the design uses fonts in a highly original and appropriate way. A splendid book for babies, and likely to prove useful as an Early Years Literacy tool.

About the author

  • Petr Horacek

    I grew up in Prague in the Czech Republic. Just outside our flat there was a wood where I spent lots of time playing with friends. We would climb on piles of soil or build bunkers from forgotten builder's materials. I always wanted to be an illustrator, but I preferred to look at the pictures inside the books rather than to read them. I would listen to the story or watch a film and then fill up my sketchbook with pictures and images from the story. I started to read books quite late, but I haven't stopped since.
