Shh! We Have a Plan

by Chris Haughton
£6.99   paperback  Walker Books Ltd (2015)

Shh! We Have a Plan by Chris Haughton The winner of the 2014 Association of Illustrators' Award for Children's Books, Shh! is the covetable new picture book from Chris Haughton, one of the most exciting new voices in children's literature. From Chris Haughton, the multi award-winning author-illustrator of A Bit Lost and Oh No, George!, comes a picture book about a beautiful bird, four friends and plans gone wrong...

The friends are out for a walk. Suddenly, they spot it a beautiful bird perched high in a tree! They simply must have it and shh! they have a plan. So they tip-toe very slowly, nets poised "Ready one ... ready two ... ready three ... GO!" But, at the turn of the page, we find a ridiculous bunch of very tangled characters and a blissfully oblivious bird, flying away.

One hilarious foiled plan after another and it's clear that this goofy gang cannot catch that elusive birdie! But the littlest of this group, a quiet spectator up until now, knows that a bit of kindness can go a long way... Will his friends follow his gentle lead or will they get themselves into even more trouble?

For readers aged: 5+
