A Squash and a Squeeze

(2 reviews with an average rating of 4 out of 5)

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

Julia Donaldson's first ever picture book is the story of an anxious little old lady, whose house is just too small - but when she asks a wise old man for help, he suggests a rather strange solution to her problems.

Pairing Donaldson's jaunty rhyming text and charming, witty illustrations by Axel Scheffler, it's no surprise that this delightful picture book has become a classic. This beautiful edition of a much-loved favourite has been published to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the book, and contains extra material, including some of Scheffler's first sketches for the illustrations, and some background about how the book came about from both Scheffler and Donaldson.
