Lunchtime

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

Publisher: Macmillan Children's Books

A little girl is busy drawing. Even though it's lunchtime, she's not hungry. But then the crocodile, wolf and bear from her pictures come to life  - and it turns out they are starving!  Luckily they aren't interested in eating small children - what they really want is the little girl's delicious lunch.

This utterly charming picture book is gorgeously illustrated by rising picture book star Rebecca Cobb, who brings humour, fun and imagination to a simple story about a little girl who doesn't want to eat her lunch. Both parents and children will enjoy the colourful, scribbly and smudgy textures of Cobb's deceptively naive drawings, as well as the delightful characters of bear, wolf and crocodile. From its sumptuous endpapers to the final appearance of the little girl with a plate of biscuits on the very last page, this is a beautiful book that may just persuade even the most reluctant toddlers to tuck in and enjoy a tasty lunch.
