The Glump and the Peeble by Wendy Meddour and Rebecca Ashdown (Frances Lincoln Children's Books)

We've never met a Glump. For that matter we've never met a Peeble but deep down in the dark forest, the two delightful creatures stir...
"The Glump and the Peeble" is a cute and original take on the 'friendship' book that teaches children a lovely moral about what happens when two entirely different critters decide to share some fun times.

The Glump is quite shy and lives alone in the wood, but as the carefree Peebles dance and sing and generally have a fabulous time in the woods, the Glump secretly wishes he could join them.

But it's just not the done thing, Glumps and Peebles don't mix - but what happens when a similarly curious and shy Peeble meets a Glump for the first time? What can the two creatures learn from each other as well as about themselves?

Fab tale, glorious artwork and a great little moral lesson about integration and friendship.

"The Glump and the Peeble" by Wendy Meddour and Rebecca Ashdown is out today, published by Frances Lincoln Children's Books (Kindly supplied for review)
