Hildegarde and the Great Green Shirt Factory by Ravay Snow
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This title is for children aged 3 to 7 years. The irrepressible Hildegarde, an ambitious and creative sheep, is introduced to young readers in this wacky, vividly illustrated book about the forces of conformity and individual expression. The domineering Mr. Arno, the boss of the Great Green Shirt Factory, shuns employee Hildegarde when she attempts to revolutionise his production line with some variations to the identical green shirts. What's an enterprising ewe to do? In a series of increasingly wacky events, she turns herself into a nocturnal fashion designer whose expertise ultimately leads to an over-the-top fashion show on the factory floor and a showdown with the narrow-minded Mr. Arno himself. The book's sparkling prose and engaging heroine make it a favourite for young readers, and the strong 'girl power' theme appeals to children of both sexes by emphasising the importance of friendship and solidarity against the forces of censorship.
