Everyone’s favourite toothy little monster is back and hungry as ever. As fans of Emma Yarlett’s indefatigable creation will know, Nibbles’ favourite food is books and he chomps his way through some much-loved stories in his latest outing even though what he should be doing is snuggling down and going to sleep. In her ingenious fashion, Yarlett sends him scampering up and across pages and through cleverly designed nibbled die-cut holes so that there are surprises and giggles with every page turn. The stories he devours include The Ugly Duckling, in which he really makes a splash, and Cinderella, where his bottom makes a surprise appearance. Eventually Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star works its magic, calming him down, though a black hole proves he was there, ‘Up above the world so high, chomping planets in the sky’. Little children will absolutely love it but there are treats for grown-ups too: how many favourite books can you spot in Nibbles’ library? It’s wonderfully interactive and imaginative and Yarlett imbues Nibbles with warmth as well as mishchief.
