Hattie the Bad
Illustrator: Joe Berger
Being good is deadly dull - badness is way more fun! But when other children are forbidden to play with her, a lonely Hattie decides goodness may win more friends. It doesn't – instead, she wins a prize for THE BEST BEHAVED CHILD – EVER! But as she climbs up to accept her award, her badness can be contained no longer...
Berger's dramatically theatrical page spreads and imaginative use of colour add flourish and pace to this deliciously deadpan cautionary tale – an exuberant celebration of that borderland where good is bad – and bad is good, which children and parents secretly (and possibly reluctantly!) salute.
