The Great Snortle Hunt

Illustrated by Kate Hindley

About The Book

A fabulous new picture book from the bestselling author of Aliens Love Underpants.

On a hill bumpy-steepy, there's a house scary-creepy,

And it's said that a Snortle lives there...

One moonlit night, Mouse, Cat and Dog set off on a great Snortle hunt - do you dare join them?

Praise for The Great Snortle Hunt

"This is mirrored brilliantly by the illustrations, particularly by the ingenious use of the space on the page. Kate Hindley is a newcomer in the picture book world but definitely one to watch. Her style is sleek and child-friendly, with plenty of detail throughout, and she uses a beautiful palette of colours which is enhanced by the use of mat paper, to wonderful effect." Armadillo, Winter 2012

"This charmingly illustrated book is guaranteed to make reading time extra exciting." Creative Steps, Summer 2012

"Will delight young readers. The beautiful illustrations by Kate Hindley are modern and scenic…a real treat for word lovers of all ages." We Love this Book, Summer 2012

"Young readers will love the build-up of excitement... Freedman knows what children like and her words are well-matched by Hindley's spikey images... the page shape too is used to maximum effect in this affirming production"Books for Keeps, July 2012
