Two classic picture books by this celebrated author-illustrator team, Colin and Jacqui Hawkins, starring the irrepressible Bruno Bear. When Bruno sets out in his rickety old car, he doesn't expect to be joined along the way by nine boisterous travellers. Count from one to ten, as Bruno's car gets fuller and fuller! In Bruno and the New Plane, no one wants to join Bruno on his very first flight. There's no stopping Bruno however, and while teaching himself to fly he picks up some surprised passengers! The original favourites have been given a make-over: eye-catching new covers; a lively new text and a whole host of wacky characters. They're just bursting with riotous fun!
Colin and Jacqui Hawkins have written and illustrated a huge range of novelty and picture books, working together as a team on each title. They are renowned for their best-selling, zany picture books for older children, such as Monsters, Pirates, Witches, Vampires and Spooks. Other well known favourites include The Foxy and Friends series, which won the Play and Learn Gold Award for the best pre-school storybook series and the Pat the Cat series, which is recommended support material for the National Literacy Strategy. Colin and Jacqui live in Duncarrig in Ireland.
