Baby on Board

Baby on Board

Summary

Once, many years ago,
there was a baby,
in his pram,
with his sisters
and their sandwiches and lemonade
and toys . . .

A lyrical and epic story about a baby and a trio of toys, and their adventure on the high seas. Beautifully told by master storyteller Allan Ahlberg and stunningly illustrated by Emma Chichester Clark in their first standalone picture-book collaboration.

Reviews

  • A lyrical text recalls iconic Ahlberg works like Peepo, here with added drama and adventure. Chichester Clark's nostalgic pictures perfectly complement the text to create a classic feel
