Snowy Sunday

By Phyllis Root
Illustrated by Helen Craig

Phyllis Root, master of rhythmic read-aloud storytelling, and Helen Craig, of Angelina Ballerina fame, present the final farmyard adventure in their delightful Bonnie Bumble series.

From Helen Craig, the illustrator of Angelina Ballerina, comes the seventh and final instalment in the popular Bonnie Bumble series. It’s Sunday, and snowflakes as big as balls of wool are falling. The cow, the duck, the hens and even Spot the dog are freezing! So Bonnie, ever the problem-solver, is determined to heat them all up: “This will never d-d-d-do," she says, with chattering teeth. Getting busy with needles and wool, she knits and knits and knits – hats and scarves, beakwarmers and tailwarmers... but the animals are still all shivery and cold! Just how can she get the sun to make everyone warm and toasty again? Helen’s playful, signature artwork perfectly accompanies the rhythmical, read-aloud text of award-winning writer, Phyllis Root, and makes for a sweet and funny story sure to delight and tickle the youngest of readers.

  • With a great read-aloud text and bright, simple art from Helen Craig, the seventh Bonnie Bumble title is suitable for the very youngest of readers - and makes a perfect Sunday, or wintertime storybook.
  • Accessible and funny, a strong standalone title which also stands as part of a covetable, collectible series.
