ifinkysaurus by Karl Parkinson
ifinkysaurus is a wonderful picture book which tells the quirky tale of a little boy who misbehaves on his birthday and gets a surprise he never thought imaginable. This delightful little book is jam packed with vibrant illustrations and is centred around the classic old game of hide and seek - but with a twist!
It's already becoming a big hit with kids up and down the country and we're sure it'll be a treasured item in years to come. Great for read out loud. Recommended for Boys & Girls. Ages: 4-7.
