Meltdown!

By Jill Murphy
Illustrated by Jill Murphy

From the creator of the Large Family series comes another perfectly observed family comedy about a baby bunny rabbit and her mum on the supermarket shop … a shop which doesn’t go quite to plan!

“Jill Murphy deserves a constellation of gold stars for consistently writing picture books that please children and enrapture parents” Observer From the bestselling author of The Worst Witch and the Large Family series comes a true-to-life, laugh-out-loud family comedy about a toddler tantrum. Ruby the rabbit likes to be helpful, but she often gets a bit overexcited … especially in the supermarket. Crisps are so CRUNCHY! Tins of beans are fun to ROLL! And when Ruby sees a cake, a cake in the shape of a cute pink piggy, she wants it … she wants it now. Introducing Ruby, a completely loveable new bunny, Jill Murphy observes the oh-so familiar supermarket sulk with all of her trademark warmth and wit, and perfectly depicts family life – in all its hectic glory – once again.

  • This is Jill doing what she does best: she finds an original story in everyday life and, in the process, speaks directly to mums and little ones alike
