‘We need the literature of other countries to expand our
horizons and stimulate our ideas. Without it, we are not only
diminished, we are starved’

Poppy's Biggest Wish
by Maxim Biller
Age Range: Under_5
Poppy’s kitten Puzzle is missing. She searches everywhere but her tiny kitten is nowhere to be found. Puzzle is not behind the washing machine, under the kitchen table, behind the sofa or even outside under the window. There is just no sign of little Puzzle at all. By the time Poppy goes to bed she is exhausted after all her searching and falls straight to sleep. She has even forgotten that tomorrow is her birthday. Despite all the lovely birthday presents Poppy receives she still doesn’t feel happy. However, her parents have an additional birthday surprise in store.
This is a delightful story of imagination and Sybille Hein’s soft, delicate, double-page water-colour illustrations accompany it perfectly.
