The Baddies: a wickedly funny picture book from the creators of The Gruffalo
About this deal
I think her reactions were genuine and she was just doing what felt natural in the moment--which makes it even funnier to me, that she was thwarting them without even trying! Your child will giggle their way through this comic tale of three very bad, silly, and completely hopeless storybook characters who dare each other to steal a hanky-chief from a young girl walking through their woods. I used to memorise poems as a child and it means a lot to me when parents tell me their child can recite one of my books.

Captivating, full of opportunities for giggles and even a story for the bigger children… (yes adults that’s you!
I was very interested to see a ghost on the cover and throughout who bares resemblance with Marley’s Ghost from Dickens’ famous tale - I think it’s amazing that when the young children come across A Christmas Carol (which the majority in England will due to the GCSE spec) they might recognise the ghost after having The Baddies as a staple household item. With stunning illustrations from Axel Axel Scheffler and intricate details on every page, this is sure to be another treat for little readers to enjoy. You have to understand that when I see a new Julia Donaldson picture book, I'm am fully prepared to be blown away by her story.

One of my television songs, A SQUASH AND A SQUEEZE, was made into a book in 1993, with illustrations by the wonderful Axel Scheffler. The brand-new picture book from superstar author and illustrator Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler is a riot of slapstick fun and silliness. We work separately - he’s in London and I’m in Glasgow - but he sends me letters with lovely funny pictures on the envelopes.The witch, troll, and ghost are more silly than scary, making this an ideal Halloween read-aloud for the early elementary grades.
