A quick note about this excellent award, which favours, as I always do, funny books.
I have seen all the finalists and my personal favourite is Hoot Owl, which is about a ravenous and sort of mad and hubristic owl. My children didn’t quite get it, but forget about them. I thought it was amazing.
Another favourite in our house at the moment is The Princess and the Pony, which has the word “fart” in it, so obviously we are just fucking beside ourselves every bedtime.
Super, just ordered these – I love book recommendations.
There’s now only one copy of the Owl book left on Amazon – is that your doing Esther?
Thank you have ordered Hoot Owl – my son’s birthday is coming up and wanted a funny picture book to go with the somewhat humourless adventures of Spiderman et al I’ve already got him, he loves funny illustrations especially. We love David Melling’s drawings and slightly odd stories as well.
