A House in the Woods

By Inga Moore
Illustrated by Inga Moore

Warm, rich and funny a beautifully illustrated title from acclaimed picture-book maker Inga Moore.

When two Little Pigs leave their home-made huts one morning, two very large friends move in Moose and Bear. It s very nice to have your friends stay, but not when they cause your home to collapse! The solution: build a house in the woods where all four of them can live together, little and big. With some help from the beaver builders and A LOT of peanut-butter sandwiches, that s exactly what they do. Set in an idyllic woodland world, this stunning new title from Inga Moore is sure to entrance readers both young and old.

  • This is the most beautiful picturebook The text has humour, but the softly lit illustrations are glorious The ethos of the book is as gentle as its images: animals work together, are hospitable and polite, honour promises, share chores and settle quietly and cosily a night. Reading A House in the Woods makes you want to live there. - The Sunday Times
