Ellie's Magic Wellies

by Amy Sparkes, illustrated by Nick East
£6.99   paperback  Egmont UK Ltd (Egmont Books Ltd) (2017)

Ellie A fantastic rhyming picture book story from Roald Dahl Prize award-winning Amy Sparkes and the illustrator behind the hugely successful Goodnight series for children, including Goodnight Tractor and Goodnight Spaceman.
Ellie Pengelly is fed up and bored, until she gets a pair of MAGICAL new wellies!
When Ellie goes out to explore in her new wellies she jumps into a puddle but... something jumps out!
When the strange Flibberty-Gibberty starts juggling with jam, guzzling and gobbling food and squeezling toothpaste he makes quite a mess! Will Ellie manage to clean up all the mess before mum gets home?
Action-packed storytelling is perfectly paired with Nick East's high-energy illustrations in this fantastic picture book that fizzes and whizzes with fun! Children will love the Flibberty-Gibberty – a wonderful character who is similar to Dr Seuss's Cat in the Hat and the Psammead from Five Children and It – and the rollicking, rhyming text is perfect for reading aloud and ideal for children 3 years of age and up.
