Next month we’re incredibly happy to be publishing What’s Next Door – a brand new picture book from Nicola O’Byrne, illustrator of Use Your Imagination, The Last Book Before Bedtime, and the Waterstones Children’s Book Prize-winning Open Very Carefully. And today you can take a first look inside the new book!
Carter, the crocodile hero of Open Very Carefully, is back and he’s NOT happy. All he wants to do is find his way home, but he can’t get there by himself – he needs YOUR help! In this unique interactive book, with brilliantly designed die-cut pages, children are encouraged to take part in the story, to create a door in the page and use their imagination to guide Carter into new environments, from stormy seas to hot deserts and icy lands. But will that cranky croc and the little friends he’s made along the way ever find their way home?
Here’s a look inside What’s Next Door:
