Hurricane Kieron and Rusharound Ria were always in a hurry. They never walked anywhere. They always ran. They went zzzzooooommm, zigga zigga, yow, yow, yow, wheeeeeeee all day long. And they didn't stop until it was time to go to bed. But then, one day, Hurricane Kieron fell over and hurt his knee. He tried to get back up and run but he couldn't. So Hurricane Kieron had to find something to do that didn't involve rushing around all the time. He took a paintbrush and some paints and made hurricanes on paper instead. And when Rusharound Ria saw how much fun he was having, she decided that maybe she should try sitting still for a while too...AGE 2-5

A noisy book that celebrated the fun of charging around, while gently encouraging quiet, creative play. Full of the sort of detail children love; bright, exuberant pictures, short sentences, lots of repetition and whooping noises to imitate. The Independent This stylised, multi-cultural picture book is fille with boundless energy and a sense of fun. The bold, colourful, alternative style of artwork will make this book leap off the shelf, with illustrations that fizzle with energy and perfectly mirror the lively story. Perfect for children aged two to five. The Malta Independent
