Eating Out

By Helen Oxenbury

The reissue of a classic first storybook to celebrate Helen Oxenbury's work.

Mum is too tired to cook so Dad offers to take the family out for supper. But the youngest person present can’t sit still and has to go to the toilet at the wrong time. Then someone falls over him when he decides to hide under the table. A warm and funny depiction of a child’s first trip to a restaurant – which quickly turns into a disaster. Helen Oxenbury’s First Storybooks perfectly describe the small but memorable events of childhood. The words are a delight and are perfect for reading aloud, and the pictures warm, affectionate visions of a child’s world, which parents and children will instantly recognize and love.

  • A classic by one of the world's most distinguished and celebrated children's book illustrators.
  • An ideal way to start a lifelong love of books.
  • Great to read aloud and appealing to beginning readers.
