Shh! We Have a Plan

Publisher: Walker Books

Review

Deep in the dark of a moonlit forest, four shady hunters are out to catch themselves a bird. Or at least they’re trying to: despite the fact that they’ve got all sorts of plans, they just can’t seem to manage to catch it. Until, that is, the littlest hunter tries to make friends with the bird and gets them in much more trouble than they bargained for.

What really makes this book shine are Chris Haughton’s superb illustrations: the gloom of the woods at night is captured perfectly by his sombre blue palette, and his expressive depiction of the hunters makes their fear of the dark palpable. A simple, funny and atmospheric story that will delight younger children, and probably their parents as well.
