‘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’
(The Times, Magnus Linklater 29/06/05)
by Philippe Corentin
Age Range: Under_5
A very hungry wolf spies what he thinks is a big, round cheese at the bottom of a well. When he bends down to reach it he loses his balance and topples into the water where he soon realises that the ‘big round cheese’ is merely the reflection of the moon. Finding himself trapped in the well, he tricks a passer-by into rescuing him. There is a neat twist at the end of this book as the sly wolf
gets what he deserves in the end.
Philippe Corentin is well known in France as an illustrator of humorous picture books. Splosh! is a highly original book with bright, comic illustrations that children will love.
