Out and About

By Shirley Hughes
Illustrated by Shirley Hughes

A beautiful first collection of poems by two-time Kate Greenaway Medal-winner Shirley Hughes.

In this wonderful collection of poems, by best-loved and Kate Greenaway Medal-winner, Shirley Hughes, Katie and her little brother Olly go out and about, romping through the changing seasons. They take pleasure in the different elements and weather conditions – sunshine, wind, rain, mist and even snow. From the joys of the seaside to the miseries of the sickbed, this exuberant volume captures to perfection the world of childhood.

  • A beautiful gift edition of the classic picture book, packed with seasonal poems and a new introduction by Shirley Hughes.
  • "Hughes at her best. Simple, evocative rhymes conjure up images that then explode in the magnificent richness of her paintings." -- Guardian
  • "One of the greatest writers and illustrators for pre-schoolers." -- The Times
