All Change!

By Ian Whybrow
Illustrated by David Melling

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Illustrated by the creator of Hugless Douglas, a wacky adventure about Tiger, Miss Lollipop and a hoard of animals who cram into cars, boats and trains and go on an epic journey!

Tiger is upset. No one has remembered his birthday - or so he thinks. His friend, Miss Lollipop, takes him on a wonderful birthday adventure: with the refrain 'All change!', they leap from one different form of transport to another, which get increasingly unlikely as they go - picking up animals and birthday presents on the way! Tiger ends up having the best birthday ever.

'This joyfully infectious book is an enjoyable romp that also throws up some nice surprises with its join-in refrain.' - The Guardian
