An alternative little pigs’ tale which encourages friendship and team work, over self-centredness, Warm, rich and funny – a beautifully illustrated title from acclaimed picture-book maker Inga Moore.

When two little pigs leave their two little homes to go out walking one morning, little do they know that they’ll come back to find their friends Bear and Moose have moved in. It’s very nice to have your friends move in. Not so nice if they are so big that your homes end up collapsing! Can the little pigs find a way to build a house in the woods where all four of them can live together? In this warm, funny and comforting story of home and friendship, Inga Moore has created a cast of memorably lovable characters and an atmospheric woodland world which children will want to visit again and again.

Review:

This is the most beautiful picturebook ... The text has humour, but the softly lit illustrations are glorious ... The ethos of the book is as gentle as its images: animals work together, are hospitable and polite, honour promises, share chores and settle quietly and cosily a night. Reading A House in the Woods makes you want to live there. -- Nicolette Jones * The Sunday Times * A House in the Woods is a stunningly illustrated children's book... This charming story is perfectly brought to life by Inga Moore's beautiful illustrations in browns, oranges and greens, which make this book a must-have for autumn. She has previously illustrated for The Wind in the Willows and The Secret Garden, and her distinctive and atmospheric pictures will make A House in the Woods a permanent fixture on children's shelves. -- Stacey Bartlett * We Love This Book website * Dedicated to beavers, who are the fastest and the best builders in the world, this book is set in an atmospheric woodland world . . . A simple tale brought to life in stunningly detailed pictures to return to time and time again. * Carousel * Words are really just a distraction in Inga Moore's fabulous A House in the Woods...All you want to do is drink in the detail of Moore's unparalleled artistry: the dappled light of the forest, the expressive posture of the animals. Children will spend hours pouring over it - but they're not having my copy. -- Dinah Hall * The Sunday Telegraph * A delightful story...the detailed drawing make this soothing story all the more magical, with no baddies, no shouting - just a happy ending! * Junior * This book reawakens the vivid pleasure of reading as a child. * Independent *
