YES! The cuddly hero of HUG and TALL is back!
Bobo's mother has no trouble getting her little chimp to take a bath. "Yes!" he shouts. But when it's bedtime for Bobo, he responds with a definite "No." In this tale of two words, it takes some patient animal friends and plenty of splashing to alter one contrary little chimp's attitude. By popular demand, Jez Alborough brings back the beloved Bobo in a charming bedtime story for every preschooler who loves chimps — and every parent who could use a welcome break from "No!"
Jez Alborough is the author-illustrator of the first two picture books about Bobo the chimp: HUG and TALL. He has also created many other celebrated books for children, including SOME DOGS DO — a story about a dog who can fly — and the best-selling Eddie and the Bear books. Jez Alborough lives in England.
