The Big Snuggle-up

by Brian Patten and Nicola Bayley, Andersen Press, hardback, 10.99

On a cold winter’s night, a little boy invites a scarecrow in out of the snow. A little mouse, who lives in the scarecrow’s sleeve, comes too. Then one animal after another invite themselves in from the cold. Next to arrive is a butterfly, then a robin, followed by a squirrel, a dog, a donkey, a heron…

The rhyming text by poet Brian Patten and the meticulous illustrations by Nicola Bayley make for a winning combination. Children will love the repetition as the list of animals grows and grows and delight in the detail of the animal illustrations. A perfect tale for cold winter days.
