Natalie and Alphonse really like books and stories ... and now it's time for Natalie to learn how to read all by herself!
In the second title featuring favourite monster siblings, Natalie and Alphonse, Natalie is learning to read. “Now I can read all the stories in the world,” she says. “And you can read them to me!” adds little brother Alphonse. But when Natalie tries to read all by herself for the first time, the letters look like squiggles, and she isn’t so sure any more… With her unique humour and bold, brilliant art, Daisy Hirst celebrates the joy of sharing stories, and perfectly evokes those feelings of frustration and pride that come with learning something new.
- The theme of literacy should make this a favourite among parents, teachers and librarians. It is for any child struggling to learn something new, and for every adult who wants to support them.
- Praise for Alphonse, That Is Not OK to Do!: "A delightfully original work, worth every penny. Picture books often feature sibling rivalry, but this one has the ring of close domestic truth" – The Independent
- There is another 'Natalie and Alphonse’ title in development – coming 2019!
