Winner of the Independent Bookshop Week Picture Book Award 2017

A book and CD version of the brilliantly funny rhyming woodland story about the perils of being too tidy - read by comedian and actor Lenny Henry.

Pete the badger likes everything to be neat and tidy at all times, but what starts as the collecting of one fallen leaf escalates and ends with the complete destruction of the forest! Will Pete realize the error of his ways and set things right?

Lush foliage and delightful characters abound in this cautionary tale that delivers its message of environmental preservation with subtlety and humour. The freshness of the illustrations and the many comic details make Tidy a very special book. It even has a die-cut cover and flaps. Once you enter this forest, you'll never want to leave.

Emily Gravett's engaging woodland creatures will appeal to fans of such classics as The Animals of Farthing Wood and The Wind in the Willows. Lenny Henry is the perfect reader for this funny, jaunty story.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The message is admirable and the cut-out cover enticing, but the greatest joy is in the comic expressions, hand-wrought images and witty detail. * Sunday Times *
If you haven't discovered the brilliant wit and inventiveness of award- winning Emily Gravett yet, then this superbly illustrated rhyming adventure is a great place to start... Gravett's familiar minor cast of bemused bunnies and dishevelled foxes pop up throughout and the pictures are packed with comic detail. Superb. * Daily Mail *
This beautiful book, illustrated in warm tones, is full of expressive, characterful animals and tells a charming story. Emily Gravett's place in the world of children's books is already established but in Tidy she excels herself and will delight new audiences -- Jane Sandell * The Scotsman *
Funny, rhyming woodland story with an environmental message * The Bookseller *
Timely, gorgeous and open-ended * Kirkus *
