Warm, rich and funny - a beautifully illustrated title from acclaimed picture-book maker Inga Moore. When two Little Pigs leave their home-made huts one morning, two very large friends move in - Moose and Bear. It's very nice to have your friends stay, but not when they cause your home to collapse! The solution: build a house in the woods where all four of them can live together, little and big. With some help from the beaver builders and A LOT of peanut-butter sandwiches, that's exactly what they do. Set in an idyllic woodland world, this stunning new title from Inga Moore is sure to entrance readers - both young and old.
"This is the most beautiful picturebook... The text has humour, but the softly lit illustrations are glorious... Reading A House in the Woods makes you want to live there." (The Sunday Times) "Words are really just a distraction in Inga Moore's fabulous A House in the Woods... All you want to do is drink in the detail of Moore's unparalleled artistry... Children will spend hours pouring over it." (The Sunday Telegraph)"
Inga Moore has illustrated numerous classics to much critical acclaim, including Kenneth Grahame's The Wind in the Willows, The Secret Garden by Frances Hodgson Burnett and Oscar Wilde's The Canterville Ghost.
