Description

An old woman sets off through the forest to visit her granddaughter, when "Boo!" – one by one, out jump a hungry fox, a hungry bear and a hungry tiger. The old woman escapes by telling them she'll taste even better on the way back, once she's eaten her dinner. But later on, at her granddaughter's, she wonders what to do... Jessica Souhami uses the brilliant colours of India to illustrate her vibrant retelling of a traditional story known all over Southern Asia.

The author

Jessica Souhami studied at the Central School of Art and Design. In 1980 she formed Mme Souhami and Co, a travelling puppet company using colourful shadow puppets with a musical accompaniment and a storyteller. Her illustrations, like her puppets, use brilliant colour and bold shapes and her characters leap and swoop across the spreads. Her books for Frances Lincoln are Sausages!, Foxy!, The Strongest Boy in the World, In the Dark, Dark Wood, Baba Yaga and the Stolen Baby, Leopard's Drum, No Dinner!, Rama and the Demon King, The Famous Adventures of a Bird Brained Hen, The Little, Little House, Mrs McCool and the Giant Cuchulainn, The Sticky Doll Trap, and King Pom and the Fox. Jessica lives in North London.
