If you look closely you'll agree, There are some silly sights to see. The pages of this book are crammed with sights that are not only silly, but are slimy, smelly and hairy, too. Silly-looking people who have silly walks tuck into some very silly food. Intergalactic slime from Mars arrives on our icky, slimy planet. Every imaginable smell is represented from camels and warthogs to stiff, stinky socks. And there is hair to be found everywhere from huge hairy gorillas to tiny hairy fleas. With her irresistible illustrations and wonderfully funny text, who better to guide us through the silly, slimy, smelly, hairy world we live in than the brilliant Babette Cole?
Babette Cole is filled with zest for life: she lives in Dorset but travels extensively, to exotic parts of the world but also around Great Britain, visiting schools and meeting children. She is a great animal lover and keeps chickens, sheep, horses, dogs and cats which all find their way into her books.
