Emily Brown, Stanley the bunny and Matilda the elephant are busy going on adventures, but every time they get to a particularly exciting part . . . Ring! Ring! goes the Emergency Telephone and it’s Matilda’s mummy on the end worrying that Matilda isn’t wearing her wellies, or eating properly or almost anything. How can Emily Brown persuade her that sometimes adventures are good?

This brilliant title from this award-winning team is a witty and poignant book about the importance of spending quality time with your children and allowing them to explore the world around them.

‘A sensitive and witty handling of fears that has a valuable lesson for adults too. Great fun.’ – Daily Mail

Written by Cressida Cowell, the bestselling author of the How to Train Your Dragon series. http://www.cressidacowell.co.uk/

Illustrated by award winning Neal Layton, creator of Stanley’s Stick.

This zany story is full of fun as well as being an imaginative exploration of insecure emotional attachment. Layton's illustrations are perfect foils for the story. Quite superb. *****
