Betty and Maud are the best of friends, and so surely their stuffed toys are too! But despite what Betty and Maud might think, Duck and Penguin are definitely NOT friends. They do not want to swing together, they do not want to cook together, and they certainly DO NOT want to play baby dolls together...
A side-splitting insight into the secret world of toys, from former Dreamworks animator and illustrator Julia Woolf.
Julia Woolf worked for 20 years in animation, including for Dreamworks US. She graduated with an MA in Children’s Book Illustration in Cambridge from Anglia Ruskin University in 2015, and went on to write and illustrate Lazy Cat and Giraffe on a Bicycle. Julia lives in Kent.
Julia Woolf conveys this witty story about friendship – or not – most effectively through the venomous scowls and frowns and ferocious looks between the two soft toys in contrast to the brilliant warm smiles of Betty and Maud.
A lovely book to share and discuss about friendship with all children, especially with those children who have difficulty making friends.
A hilarious and beautifully illustrated observation of friendship… the perfect tool for helping children in their first days at nursery.
Funny and full of insight, this is the perfect picture book for celebrating the ins and outs of friendship.
