    • Julia Donaldson

      Growing upI grew up in a tall Victorian London house with my parents, grandmother, aunt, uncle, younger sister Mary and cat Geoffrey who was really a prince in disguise Mary and I would argue about which of us would marry him.Mary and I were always creating imaginary characters and mimicking real ones, and I used to write shows and choreograph ballets for us A wind up gramophone wafted out Chopin waltzes.I studied Drama and French at Bristol University, where I met Malcolm, a guitar playing medic to whom I m now married Busking and booksBefore Malcolm and I had our three sons we used to go busking together and I would write special songs for each country the best one was in Italian about pasta The busking led to a career in singing and songwriting, mainly for children s television I became an expert at writing to order on such subjects as guinea pigs, window cleaning and horrible smells We want a song about throwing crumpled up wrapping paper into the bin was a typical request from the BBC I also continued to write grown up songs and perform them in folk clubs and on the radio, and have recently released two CDs of these songs One of my television songs, A SQUASH AND A SQUEEZE, was made into a book in 1993, with illustrations by the wonderful Axel Scheffler It was great to hold the book in my hand without it vanishing in the air the way the songs did This prompted me to unearth some plays I d written for a school reading group, and since then I ve had 20 plays published Most children love acting and it s a tremendous way to improve their reading My real breakthrough was THE GRUFFALO, again illustrated by Axel We work separately he s in London and I m in Glasgow but he sends me letters with lovely funny pictures on the envelopes.I really enjoy writing verse, even though it can be fiendishly difficult 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.Funnily enough, I find it harder to write not in verse, though I feel I am now getting the hang of it My novel THE GIANTS AND THE JONESES is going to be made into a film by the same team who made the Harry Potter movies, and I have written three books of stories about the anarchic PRINCESS MIRROR BELLE who appears from the mirror and disrupts the life of an otherwise ordinary eight year old I have just finished writing a novel for teenagers.When I m not writing I am often performing, at book festivals and in theatres I really enjoy getting the children in the audience to help me act out the stories and sing the songs When Malcolm can take time off from the hospital he and his guitar come too and it feels as if we ve come full circle back to busking.

    • The pig hides in a variety of places but always gets found, either by her friends or my toddler.Language: Fine! 3/5 It's really more about theArtwork: Adorable pig-hiding locations. 4/5Fun: My kid LOVED this. 5/5Morals: Lock up yo picnic baskets! 3/5Feminism: Everyone loves hide-and-seek. And while she does indulge in pig-stereotypical behaviour of eating all the picnic before everyone else, and wears a dress and an apron, overall I think she's rocking her own personal style even if it's conform [...]


    • My enjoyment of this was hampered by not being able to lift the flaps (may or may not be reading stock room kids books) but they were fairly obvious so it matters not. More for littler little ones, but still great rhymes. Some adult writers can't even write this well.



    • Very cute. Only gives you a little clue as to who can be hiding under each flap, letting you be surprised when you open it.


    • My son and I loved this book. It has a good rhyme to it and lovely pictures with good flaps. The only reason I gave it four stars is because squirrels feet do not line up correctly with his legs when you lift the flap.


    • This is lovely. A great introduction to British woodland creatures for Flo. Beautiful illustrations and, as always with Donaldson, a great rhyming scheme which kids love.
