Poppy dreams it would be fun to have a tail! But which kind will she choose? She tries out lots of different animal tails, then invents her own and finds lots of amusing and original ways to use it. With vibrant illustrations and light-hearted rhyme, Poppy's Tail is a glossy, playful and engaging picture book, beautifully designed to captivate a young child's imagination. There's plenty for the reader and child to discuss, from choosing their favourite animal tail to sharing ideas about, and perhaps even making, one of their own. Essentially this is a jaunty little tale about creativity, imagination, individuality and the importance of friendship. Age range 3-5 years.
