With sturdy flaps on every spread and rhyming stories that are a joy to read aloud, the Tales From Acorn Wood have been delighting both parents and toddlers for fifteen years. In Tales From Acorn Wood: Fox's Socks and Rabbit's Nap, two of the popular lift-the-flap stories from the creators of The Gruffalo, Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler, are together in paperback for the first time, with a beautiful foiled cover look.
Rabbit is trying to get to sleep, but everyone is being so noisy. Lift the flaps and find out who is keeping Rabbit awake. Then join Fox in a hunt for his missing socks. Are they in the kitchen or under the stairs? Are they inside the clock or hidden in a chest? Lift the flaps and find out!
Look out for Tales From Acorn Wood: Hide-and-Seek Pig and Postman Bear, also available as a two-books-in-one paperback.
