9780006647713: Don't Step on the Crack

Whatever you do, don’t step on the crack!

Because somewhere in a particular town on a particular street there is a particular crack that could bring you bad luck!

You could turn into a pig, or your baby brother might grow fangs. Your mum might decide to go for a younger look, or worse still you might forget to put your trousers on before you go to school!

Colin McNaughton explores, with characteristic wit and exuberance, the possible dangers of ignoring this familiar lore of childhood. Bursting with colour, ‘Don’t Step on the Crack’ is guaranteed to feed the imagination and ensure a simple walk along the street will never be the same again…

The story goes that there is a town somewhere and in that town, a street.

On that street is a pavement, and on that pavement, a crack.

Whatever you do... DON'T STEP ON THE CRACK!

Colin McNaughton, in typical exuberant style, tackles one of childhood's familiar lores by suggesting what actually might happen if you break the rules: Will you suddenly turn into a pig? Or run into THOSE boys? Or your baby brother could suddenly grow fangs...

Bold illustration and even bolder text make this a funny and, in a way, strangely comforting book for adults and children to enjoy together. (Age 3 and over) --Susan Harrison
