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 Book is 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.
