Shh! We Have A Plan by Chris Haughton (Walker Books)

961271_10152283808210446_1165316140_nWe are BIG Chris Haughton fans here and particularly loved ‘A Bit Lost‘, so when Mumsnet offered us an opportunity to review his latest picture book, we jumped at the chance.


If you’ve had the pleasure of reading Chris’s previous offerings, you’ll know he has a very deceptively simple, distinct style of illustration and a unique way of story-telling.

Shh!This book is no different and its humour will appeal to the little and not-so-little children in your home.


Four, wide-eyed characters, set out on their journey to catch a bird – easy peasy! But it’s not all plain sailing and they face a number of mishaps along the way. After all, how difficult could it be to catch a bird?


The predominantly blue pages with the pops of colour of the birds, take your eyes on this fun-filled adventure to catch our feathered friend. But watch what happens when the birds fight back! Watch how the vibrant pinks and oranges start to take over the blue pages.


We cannot recommend this enough in fact, ALL of Chris Haughton‘s books. They are simple in style and all the more powerful for it.
Hence why my four year old and my forty four year old both love this book. It’s a real crowd pleaser.
