Winner of the Young Children sector of the Fiera di Bologna Graphics Prize in 1987, this book contains fourteen especially created board games devised by some of today's best-known illustrators including Susanna Gretz's teddybear's first game of draughts, to Angela Barrett's version of Ludo. Tony Ross contributes a game of tennis played under the Bumbledon Rules and Ralph Steadman offers children the chance to be naughty with "Don't do that!" Children should also enjoy meeting old and familiar favourites in "Alice in Wondergame" (John Talbot); "What-a-Mess in the Bone Race" (Frank Muir and Joseph Wright), and the Trumpets and Grumpets in "Heavens Above" (Peter Cross). The other illustrators include Jez Alborough; Quentin Blake; John Yeoman; Tony Blundell; Catherine Brighton; Alison Sage; Satoshi Kitamura; Shoo Rayner; Helen Wire and Fulvio Testa.
