The Book That Made Me: Philip Reeve 16/10/19
Read The Book, Lemmings!
Publisher: Andersen Press
Welcome aboard the S S Cliff with first mate Foxy, Captain Polar Bear and three little lemmings. According to Foxy’s book, "Everything About Lemmings", lemmings don’t actually jump off cliffs. There’s just one problem: the lemmings haven’t read it.
This book is an absolute joy to read. With its laugh-out-loud story of Foxy’s many attempts, and fails, of getting the lemmings to read the book rather than jump ship, it’s a sweet and simple tale that captures the understanding of communication between people. Accompanied by bright and quirky artwork, this is an excellent must-have book for picture book collectors.
