Lunchtime

3.84 based on 59 ratings & 11 reviews on Goodreads.com

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.

About Rebecca Cobb

Rebecca Cobb is a rising star in children's picture books.

Rebecca has collaborated on two picture storybooks with the Orange-Prize winner Helen Dunmore, both set in her native Cornwall. In 2011 Macmillan published Rebecca's debut solo project, the hugely accomplished MISSING MUMMY which approached the subject of child bereavement with great honesty, senstivity and integrity.
