My Worst Book Ever!

Allan Ahlberg, Bruce Ingman

Picture books are such good fun and so is making them but who knew there were so many things that could go wrong?

This is the story of a picture book doomed from the very start. Allan has a good idea for book about a crocodile, but every time he sits down to write, he s interrupted. The manuscript gets soaked in tea and nibbled by snails. And then when Bruce gets started on the pictures, he gets overexcited and draws a hippo, not a crocodile. The publishers get overexcited too they want a dinosaur and experiment with all kinds of different fonts. Allan and Bruce think they ve straightened things out, but then when the book goes off to the printer you guessed it there s MORE trouble. Pages in French and Chinese get muddled with the pages in English, and somehow Bruce s hippos and dinosaurs get mixed up with them too.

My Worst Book Ever is a clever and amusing introduction to the process of writing books for children, and they along with their parents will be delighted to see how hilariously wrong Allan and Bruce s book turns out.
