Fabulous children's story - 27th Sep 2016

Billy: The Most Horrible Boy in the World
By Michael Dugan and illustrated by Brett Colquhoun

This is a really fabulous children's story / picture book published by Puffin.  

As you can see, the illustrations are superb.  They are simple black and white pen & ink pictures conveying a wealth of information and emotion with a few strokes.  There are some really vile details which will appeal to children of all ages (although maybe not to very sensitive under-fives).  

The story is a moral one where Billy gets his just desserts in the end but in between his second birthday and his final comeuppance, there are quite a few amusing adventures.

We hadn't noticed this book in our stock but today one of our very regular young customers called Alice brought it up to the counter to show us.  (She was chuckling).

We really love it and thank Alice for showing it to us.
