The Little Adventurers: Leafy the Pet Leaf

By Philip Ardagh
Illustrated by Elissa Elwick

If you're brave, helpful, honest, good to your planet and kind to animals (even ones that don't do much ... like boring worms) then you, too, can be a LITTLE ADVENTURER.

From the award-winning Philip Ardagh, and rising illustration talent Elissa Elwick, comes a brand-new picture book series! Meet the Little Adventurers – Finnegan, Sprat, Floss and Peanut. Each week they meet in their top-secret shed HQ, ready to share their fun with you! This week, Sprat can’t seem to find his cat, Shadow, anywhere. And he absolutely has to have a pet – it’s bring in a pet day! So, instead, he finds a leaf, draws a little face on it and… Ta-Da! Sprat has a pet: Leafy! But can you really have a leaf as a pet? With an activity idea and an information page with every story in the series, the Little Adventurers four will encourage hours of immersive play, and will ignite the imagination of curious adventurers everywhere.

  • Marking the launch of a brand-new adventure series (The Famous Five for the under-fives!), this is Philip Ardagh's first ever foray into picture book writing!
  • Has a wonderfully green, eco-friendly message about the joys of being outside and of finding inspiration in nature
  • Full of the silliness, fun and contagious energy you get when friends come together to play, imagine, disagree, make up, and discover the world around them!
