Things get dark in the Hildaverse 10/10/19
In a Minute
Publisher: Frances Lincoln Children's Books
The third collaboration between Bradman and Browne (the inventor of the wonderful Handa's Surprise), introduces us again to Jo, and to her friend Sita, whose visit to the park with Jo's parents is threatened by so many delays they fear they'll never get there.
Bradman and Browne detail the everyday things which carers do which frustrate children when they are desperate to be off and doing: getting the food ready, losing the dog lead, talking to the friends they meet. They miss the bus, and then there's a terrible disappointment in the park before they find a great surprise.
The lively, detailed illustrations introduce a wealth of additional information into this multicultural society, providing talking points around equality and diversity.
