      This book sounds lovely. I learned long ago to choose carefully when deciding on bedtime books for our children as I know I’ll be reading them again and again and again.

      I once got very wobbly after drinking with Tim, and now, many years later I have a young daughter.
      Surely that warrants a free book!

      I’ve just read Here Comes Frankie! to my 2 and a half year old and she immediately read it back to me! The eclectic illustrations, quirky layout and engaging story instantly captured not only my daughter’s imagination, but mine as well! Would love to own a copy of Thank You for Looking after our Pets. Tim Hopgood is clever and his books unusual, bright and uplifting πŸ™‚
