Joy

By Yasmeen Ismail
Illustrated by Jenni Desmond

A delightfully upbeat read-aloud picture book, perfect to share with very young children.

“Bounce bounce, ding-a-ling, ring ring, let’s sing! I feel joy!” From an award-winning author and illustrator pairing comes an irresistibly energetic read-aloud picture book. Join the bouncy little kitten as she plays with her favourite toy and – uh oh – falls down with a trip-trip-slip. But with a little hug, a kiss and a squeeze, she’s going to be just fine. A truly joyful celebration of the love between parent and child.

  • A collaboration between two award-winning author-illustrators.
  • Rhythmic and onomatopoeic text makes a perfect read-aloud story for the very young.
  • Yasmeen Ismail is the author-illustrator of the Kiki & Bobo series; Jenni Desmond's most recent book with Walker is On the Night of the Shooting Star, written by Amy Hest.
