Kumusha Books, a new imprint from HarperCollins Children's Books, have just launched the first two books in the Look Out! Hungry Animals series by Paul Delaney: Hungry Snake and Hungry Lion, both hide-and-seek flap books for little ones.
It’s dinnertime and Hungry Lion is in the mood for something to eat… but his prey see him coming! Will Lion end up with anything to munch or will Monkey, Zebra, Buffalo, Elephant and Hare defeat him?
It’s dinnertime but with Snake’s prey running away or refusing to be eaten, will she end up with anything on her plate? Toad, Mouse, Owl, Deer and Fish are determined not to be the "plat du jour"!
The format of these books with six spreads and five sturdy flaps is perfect for little hands and children will love discovering who’s hiding on each page in this funny and playful introduction to the food chain!
