A sweet and funny story from critically acclaimed author-illustrator Rebecca Cobb, illustrator of The Paper Dolls and The Everywhere Bear.

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

With simple, child-friendly text full of wit and humour, and bright, detailed illustrations, this is a wonderful addition to any preschool child's bookshelf. Winner of the Waterstones Children's Book Prize and shortlisted for the CILIP Kate Greenaway Medal, Lunchtime is a beautifully illustrated tale of food, friendship and fun.

Also available from Rebecca Cobb: Aunt Amelia, The Something and Hello Friend!

Funny and charming – as delicious as the little girl's dinner.
