The Messy Book
Cat has made a mess and she won't tidy it up - no matter how many times Dog asks her. Can Dog convince Cat, a giraffe and two penguins to clean up this very messy book?
Children will laugh out loud at the quirky illustrations from the exciting new talent Richard Smythe (Beep Beep Beep Time For Sleep!) and will pore over the fabulously clever design. Packed with humour and adorably funny animal characters, The Messy Bookis the perfect story for anyone who has ever been told to tidy their room. A great book to use as a springboard to discuss the importance of cleaning and tidiness, and more widely about environmental issues.
When not writing, Maudie spends far too much of her time in expensive shops gawping at clothes and glittery things she can't afford, and dreaming about owning a pug called Stanley. She'd love to say that she runs marathons - but that would be a lie. Richard lives in Sussex with his wife and dog. He loves drawing and has been scribbling away since he was a tiny boy - often covering his sister's homework with his 'masterpieces', much to her annoyance. Richard loves to tell stories with his illustrations, especially if they involve animals and silly things.
