Shh! We have a plan
By Chris Haughton
Chris Haughton uses a distinctive colour palette in each of his books. Here he utilises many shades of blue to depict the nocturnal wanderings of four bird hunters. The attempts of the three fellows at the front to capture the radiantly coloured bird are consistently foiled. And then ... the littlest one at the back takes a different tack, with unexpected results. The book has a simple repetitive text which children will quickly access for themselves as they enjoy the pictures peopled with Chris Haughton’s characteristic and comical angular and wide-eyed figures.
