My Pictures after the Storm

$22.00 NZD

A funky little children’s book that takes the “before and after” concept to unexpected places.

A gust of wind, an elephant, a dive bomb, a spell: this funky “before and after” book will have you chuckling!
What happens to a lion after the storm? His mane is swept into a dishevelled mess. What becomes of a pear after an elephant passes by? Pear jam! A frog after a spell? A prince. And the room after a battle? A big mess!

Comical illustrations, witty wordplay, and new rhymes and jokes to find with each re-reading.
