Winner of the Waterstones' Children's Picture Book Prize.

It's lunchtime for one little girl, but she's just not hungry. A visiting crocodile, bear and wolf, however, are starving. It's just as well that children taste revolting!

Lunchtime, by critically acclaimed author-illustrator Rebecca Cobb, is a beautifully illustrated tale of food, friendship and fun.
