'Wise old man, won't you help me, please? My house is a squash and squeeze'. What can you do if your house is too small? The wise old man knows: bring in a flappy, scratchy, noisy crowd of farmyard animals. When you push them all out again, you'll be amazed at how big your house feels! This brilliantly funny story is the first ever picture book written and illustrated by the award-winning team of Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, authors of The Gruffalo .
Axel Scheffler has achieved worldwide acclaim for his illustrations, and his books have been translated into over 20 languages. He has enjoyed particular success in his picture book collaborations with Julia Donaldson, but is also the best-selling illustrator of novelty books including THE BEDTIME BEAR (0 333 63788 7) and THE TICKLE BOOK (0 333 78151 5).
