Description

''Wise old man, won't you help me, please? My house is a squash and squeeze.''

Visit the farm in the brilliantly funny A Squash and a Squeeze, the first ever picture book written and illustrated by the unparalleled picture book partnership of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, creators of The Gruffalo.

A little old lady lives all by herself in her house but she's not happy - it's just too small, even for one. Whatever can she do? The wise old man knows: bring in a flappy, scratchy, greedy, noisy crowd of farmyard animals. When she pushes them all out again, she'll be amazed at how big her house feels!

A Squash and a Squeeze audio CD is read aloud by actress Imelda Staunton, bringing to life all the farmyard animals!
