When Mum wakes up her Huffalots, nothing is right – they don’t like their clothes, their breakfast is yucky and they just don’t like each other. When one of them trips over, the other offers a hug and they magically transform into Huffalittles, then Lovealittles, and finally, with a big cuddle they become Lovealots. But it’s been a long day and Mum is now grumpy and tired. Good thing the Lovealots know exactly what to do...
A gorgeous picture book that explores how moods change through the day, and what we can do to help others feel better.
Eve Coy always loved to draw. She studied animation at Edinburgh University and became an artist working for Aardman Animation. When they lived in Bristol she would take her first daughter to the library which had a fabulous children's section, placed on shelves inside a boat. She and her daughter were frequent passengers on that boat, and as they worked their way through the shelves Eve became hooked on picture books. Eve gained an MA in Children's illustration from the prestigious Cambridge School of Art and was shortlisted for the Klaus Flugge Prize for her first picture book Looking After Daddy.
A beautifully written, illustrated and observed book from an immensely talented lass who sums up the ups and downs of children’s lives (and those of their parents) so perfectly.
