Written by Giles Andreae

ISBN 1-84121-681-x

This was the first book in which I found a way of illustrating that I was really happy with. It's such a wonderfully life-affirming story, I'm very pleased it's gone on to be such a bestseller with over 1.5 million copies sold. Can you spot the cricket, and the red, yellow and blue beetles on every page?
