Rita and Whatsit's New Friend
by Jean-Philippe Arrou-Vignod
Age Range: Under_5
The irresistible duo Rita and Whatsit have found a new friend, Alfie who lives in a flat across the road. Rita invites him round to play but is amazed when he turns up with his TV! The only problem is that he doesn’t want to do anything except watch television. Rita decides that if Alfie is going to be a spoilsport she will go and play with Whatsit. However, Whatsit is nowhere to be found.
Jean-Philippe Arrou-Vignod’s delightful dialogue between the two friends is accompanied by Olivier Tallec’s charming, minimalistic illustrations in black and red which are full of detail and wit. Other titles in the series are Rita and Whatsit! Rita and Whatsit at School, Rita and Whatsit at the Beech, Christmas with Rita and Whatsit and Rita and Whatsit go on a Picnic.
