Alphonse, There's Mud on the Ceiling!

Author: Daisy Hirst
Illustrator: Daisy Hirst
Publisher: Walker

Alphonse and Natalie live in a flat on the seventh floor. Despite the limitations of space, they indulge in a range of imaginative play activities. However, Natalie in particular yearns for wildness and their Dad widens their horizons by taking them to the local park.  This picturebook can encourage exploration of the idea that the wild exists in small urban spaces as well as the expanses of the countryside. It also contains some delightful alliterative language – ‘they wriggled and wiggled and squiggled and squoze’.

Natalie and Alphonse also appear in Alphonse, That Is Not OK to Do! (9781406373134), Walker £7.99 and I Do Not Like Books Anymore! (9781406382914), Walker £7.99
