The Shrew that Flew (Harry and Lil Book 3) by Julia Copus and Eunyoung Seo (Faber and Faber)

Harry (the hog) and Lil (the shrew) are back in their third children's picture book. So what are our two friends up to now?

Julia Copus and Eunyoung Seo's brilliant animal characters are back for an all new adventure and this time the focus is on Lil (Charlotte ADORES Lil).

It's time for Badger's birthday party, and as Lil is hanging out her washing, she loses her favourite party hat.

She's heartbroken, but as Harry sagely points out, Shrews won't be able to fly away in pursuit of their lost bonnets - flying is for birds only!

Lil is one determined little shrew though, and she sets out to prove Harry wrong. What could a shrew use to get airborne though?

An umbrella?

A fan?

Perhaps Deer has the answer. A gigantic balloon!

A whimsical and cute story following on from "Hog in the Fog" and "The Hog, The Shrew and the Hullabaloo"

Charlotte's favourite bit: The first few breathtaking moments as intrepid Lil takes to the skies!

Daddy's favourite bit: Charming and whimsical storytelling, glorious illustrations and an exciting tale sure to tickle the toes of your tiny tots.
