Nibbles is a very naughty book monster - he's chomping, munching and nibbling his way through fairytales that don't belong to him! Can you help catch him and put him back in his own story?

Children will love to lift the flaps, peek through the peep holes, and chase Nibbles through a fantastical world of books, in this quirky story, exquisitely illustrated by Emma Yarlett (My Daddy's Going Away and Bear's Big Bottom). Jam-packed full of your kids' favourite fairy tales including Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

Review quote

"Emma Yarlett is seriously genius. I am pretty sure kids and parents alike will go back to Nibbles over and over again." * - London Mums * "The book is stunning ... It's every book lover's picture book dream." * - Winged Reviews * "Emma Yarlett's best yet." * - Jill R Bennett * "This is a picture book not to be missed! Nibbles is a fantastic book! The lift-the-flaps element is perfect for the classroom and brings the story to life for readers and listeners." * - Madeleine Lindley Book Centre * "There is so much detail on every page that re-reading is a delight full of fresh surprises each time." * - Teach Early Years Magazine * "This is just the kind of bright, interactive and lively picture book that children love... full of mischief, adventure and the joyful experience of reading. Picture book bliss for busy little hands and inquisitive young minds!" * - Lancashire Evening Post * "Newly developing readers can have great fun lifting flaps and chasing Nibbles through the books while enjoying the gorgeously expressive illustrations." * - Primary Times Magazine * "A wonderful story to illustrate how readers 'devour' books." * - Reading Zone * "This is a joyous celebration of reading and naughtiness that little ones will gobble up." * - Irish Daily Mail * "Nibbles is sure to be a hit with the whole family." * - The BookTrust * "One of my favourite picture books of the year so far." * - Book Lover Jo * "If you love books, then how can you not love a book about books? Take a bite, book lovers!" * - A Bookish Life * "Mischievous, witty and playful, Nibbles: The Book Monster by Emma Yarlett is one of the most enjoyable picture books to read aloud I've come across in a long time." * - Playing By The Book * "The combination of cute characters, colourful illustrations, intelligent interactivity and excellent execution means that Nibbles: The Book Monster is a strong contender for best book in this house. If all children's books were as well thought out as this one, adults would probably stop reading their own books." * - The Book Bag * "Brilliant fun." * - Angels and Urchins Magazine * "A superbly crafted and ingenious picture book." * - South Wales Evening Post * "Full of flaps to lift and holes to peek through, the format makes wonderful use of Yarlett's sense of invention and playfulness." * - The Bookseller * "The stories within the story are clever and funny and the illustrations are wonderfully detailed. It is ideal for family reading and seems set to become a favourite." * - The Scotsman * "Funny and innovative, with clever cut-outs throughout." * - Metro * "Younger children (from three to six) will love this highly interactive and hugely imaginative book." * - Huffington Post * "[Nibbles] works on several levels: chubby toddler fingers will love to explore the chunky cutaways, where Nibbles has chewed; older readers will enjoy the fun of Nibbles making a guest appearance in fairytales from 'Little Red Riding Hood' to 'Goldilocks and the Three Bears'." * - The Guardian * "Fantastic production makes this book a really exciting reading experience." * - BookTrust * "Gloriously fun and interactive fairytale mash-up from a rising picture book star." * - The Bookseller * "Cheeky, funny and brilliantly original." * - S (Sunday Express Magazine) *
