Highly Commended Most Promising New Talent 2012: Where Is Fred by Edward Hardy and Ali Pye
A ravenous crow is on the look-out for a white fluffy caterpillar for his supper. Funny how he's nowhere to be found…
Meet Fred: he’s a lovely fluffy white caterpillar. He’s also pretty adept at hiding himself in the unlikeliest of places, such as atop a fluffy cloud, nestling in a frothy cappuccino, snoozing on a cuddly sheep’s ear, or even masquerading as a bushy white monobrow! Meet Gerald: he's a curious crow, who's feeling decidedly peckish and would rather like some delicious for his supper. He's also ever so slightly suspicious about all these fluffy incarnations that look a bit like a caterpillar, though everyone ensures him that he's mistaken.
Children will love the interactive hide-and-seek element of this sweet story with the clever caterpillar assumes a roster of cunning disguises. There’s a funny twist in the tale, too, as Fred is transformed into a butterfly!
