9780007259694: Farmyard Read and Play Set

A superb value gift pack containing three farmyard themed picture books and six farm animal toys – will keep little ones entertained for hours! Contain three books by the current Children’s Laureate, Michael Rosen.

The books contained in this gift pack are: ‘Snore!’, ‘Oww!’ and ‘Shoo!’

All is quiet on the farm and the animals are drifting off to sleep… until Dog starts to snore! One by one, all the other animals try to stop him: Sheep says ‘Boo’, the piglets giggle and Cat even tries to sing – will they finally get some peace on a noisy night?

Piggy Piglet has a prickly problem with whatever he has sat on and needs help from his farmyard friends. But when his brothers and sisters try to BOUNCE it off it prickles them too – OWW! OINK! OINK! When Dog tries to WHACK it off it prickles his tail – OWW! WOOF! And when Cat tries to CLAW it off it prickles her paw – OWW! MEOW! It doesn’t seem as though anyone will be able to help Piggy Piglet, until the most unhelpful animal on the farm appears looking for a tasty breakfast!

It is a hot day at the farm and all the animals are cooling down in the shady barn. But Cat doesn’t want to share the barn with the others, so he sneaks up ever so quietly behind Pig and all the Piglets… and suddenly shouts ‘SHOO!’ to frighten them away. However, when he sees that all the other animals are having fun outside whilst he is left all alone in the barn, he realises that maybe his plan wasn’t such a good idea after all…
