A Great Big Cuddle (Hardback)

Michael Rosen


Two of the biggest names in children's publishing, Michael Rosen and Chris Riddell, come together in a new poetry collection. The poems in A Great Big Cuddle fizz off the page with sound and rhythm, energy and laughter, as Rosen captures in the most remarkable way what it means to be very, very young. A child's world with all its details and feelings - toys and games, animals and made-up creatures, likes and dislikes - is vividly conjured up in the most memorable, playful language, and Chris Riddell has produced some his most extraordinary pictures ever to bring this world to life. It's a book that will be enjoyed by the oldest grown-up and the youngest child - and a future classic.

Joint winner of the CLPE Children's Poetry Award 2016

This book is longlisted for the Kate Greenaway Medal 2017.

Enjoyable read -

This was bought as a new baby present for baby number three. Now 11 months, she babbles away while the 6-year-old enjoys reciting some of the poems to her.
#Rumba-rumba-bumba being one of the favourites. The 4-year-old enjoys looking at the pictures and listens well to poems such as I am Hungry, I am Angry and Are you Listening? Super first poem book for KS1 and below.
