This highly detailed, frequently informative and always hilarious book is Babette Cole at her brilliant best!
Babette Cole is filled with a zest for life. She lives in the English countryside but travels extensively to exotic parts of the world and also round this country, visiting schools and meeting children. Babette is the author of many classic and wonderfully anarchic picture books for children including Drop Dead, winner of the Kurt Maschler Award.
