Christopher Nibble returns in a tale of minibeasts and mystery!

About the Author

Charlotte Middleton grew up in a little village in the Cotswolds. As a child she owned various guinea pigs and they kept sections of her parents' garden lawn very well trimmed with their nibbling. Those childhood guinea pigs are the inspiration for Christopher Nibble! At school, Charlotte loved drawing and would regularly illustrate her spelling and times tables test papers. She went on to study Graphic Art and Illustration at the Cambridge School of Art. Her first book, Tabitha's Terrifically Tough Tooth, was published in 1998 and since then she has written and illustrated more than a dozen books. Her stories have been sold all over the world and Charlotte would love to be as well-travelled as her books one day. Charlotte's home is now in South Gloucestershire and she shares it with her husband, Endaf, and cat, Pablo

Reviews

`Praise for Christopher Nibble: I adored the illustrations - Charlotte Middleton's guinea pig world is eccentrically realised and the strong environmental message doesn't detract from the overriding humour in the story.' Askews Library Service Children's Newsletter `When dandelions begin disappearing it's up to Nibbles to rescue the last plant so new seeds can fly through the air, nearly 3-D, on a beautifully evocative spread. ' New York Times `Middleton's tale of over-consuming and scarcity is direct but not preachy. Using a bold font for emphasis, the text is simple and age appropriate, but the mixed-media illustrations steal the show. A photo of a cabbage is combined with drawn elements such as insects. The library scene is full of humorous book titles that will elicit chuckles from young and old. Every page features something that draws the eye in for a closer look. ' School Library Journal `...an absolute delight... Recommended. ' thebookbag.co.uk
